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 onThe 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.
I follow Mindy on Twitter and love her work. I can't wait. Luckily, there's a 27 page excerpt on her publisher's website.
