Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Comedy's fastest-rising star takes to the page in a book of essays, personal anecdotes, and impassioned pleas.

Multi-hyphenate Mindy Kaling is an Emmy-nominated writer, the actress famous for playing the beloved Kelly Kapoor on The Office, and the author of one of Twitter's most popular and quoted feeds.  She is a keen and witty observer of life, romance, and pop culture, whom the New York Times recently called "an entirely original and of-the-moment" performer and Entertainment Weekly deemed “one of the ten funniest actresses in Hollywood.”

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy shares her observations, fears, and opinions about a wide-ranging list of the topics she thinks about the most: from her favorite types of guys (including Sherlock Holmes, NBA players, Aaron Sorkin characters, and 19th-century fictional hunks) to life in the Office writers' room to her leisure pursuit of dieting (“I don’t travel, speak other languages, do crafts, or enjoy sports, but I love reading about new diets”) and how much she loves romantic comedies.  Loaded with personal stories and laugh-out-loud philosophies, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? is a must-read by one of the most original comedic voices working today.

From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"In this audio edition of her memoir, Kaling charts the course of her varied life, while offering often hilarious, sometimes poignant tips and words of wisdom mined from her childhood and adult life. Through a series of essays, lists, and anecdotes, Kaling recalls her childhood in Cambridge, Mass. — complete with girl clique dates to the Cheesecake Factory — moving to New York City, her eventual relocation to Los Angeles, and her current job writing for and acting on NBC's The Office. Kaling's narration is conversational, entertaining, bubbly, and spirited — and reminiscent of Kelly Kapoor, her character on The Office — and the result is a short but very enjoyable listen. Kaling's fresh humor, one-liners, and analogies (e.g., 'We clung to each other with blind loyalty like Lord Voldemort and his snake Nagini. I of course was Nagini') make this audio worth listening to a second time and sharing with friends. A Crown Archetype hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
