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.
Mindy Kaling is most widely known for playing "Kelly Kapoor" on television show THE OFFICE, but she has enjoyed a prolific career behind the scenes as a comedy writer since her graduation from Dartmouth in 2001. Her essays--describing her journey from college campus wunderkind to lowly intern to writer/producer to television star--feature the intelligent, self-deprecating but empowered humor that fans have come to love. In addition to telling her life story (so far), she riffs on screenwriting, fashion, living in New York City, favorite comedy moments, her own distractibility, and her funny cadre of friends.
