Product 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.

I've never heard of Mindy Kaling before, until I found a Pinterest board with an image of the book cover. The title was fascinating, so I searched the book on Book Depository. It turned out that it wasn't released yet, so I pre-ordered the book. 3 weeks later, it arrived at my doorstep and I read it right away. It was an entertaining and light read, and everytime I put down the book, I couldn't wait to pick it up again and continue reading. I laughed a lot while reading this book. I really enjoyed reading it, and maybe I'll read it again in the future during free time.

I highly recommend you to get this book if you want a light and entertaining read.

Review quote

"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"
