Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

After reading her funny quips on Twitter and her hilarious recent New Yorker article, I have a feeling that Mindy Kaling’s new book will be the solution to “Bossypants” being too short.
Here’s the description:
Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”
Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!
In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.
What do you guys think? I love me a good slightly-neurotic, sarcastic, and funny read, especially when it’s by a lady! Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) will be released November 1.
This sounds very amusing… click click click on Amazon I go!
I’ll be picking it up on my Kindle!
Good recommendation Christina – this is on my booklist now :) – Shona.
Thanks, Shona! I was about to read it, but couldn’t wait for the Nov 1 release date and started reading something else. It’ll be next though ;)
