Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns)by Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling is hilarious, not in an "lol, I realize this is humorous on an intellectual level" kind of way, but in an "I am actually giggling so hard I'm hitting my nose on the pages of this book, and now I'm that crazy person laughing alone in her room while reading" way. Unabashedly relatable, Is Everyone Hanging Out without Me? (and Other Concerns) is the funniest book I've read all year.
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"She's like Tina Fey's cool little sister. Or perhaps... the next Nora Ephron." The New York Times
"The fashion opinions of Kelly Kapoor mixed with a Miss Manners-esque advice column." EW.com
"If you love Kelly and think the three minutes or so allotted her on episodes of The Office are too few, you can take home Mindy." The New Yorker
"Is anyone else kind of sold on the genius title alone?" Nylon
"Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) is hilarious and relatable — just like Kaling's classic Tweets." Ladies Home Journal
