Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)
Mindy Kaling (2011)
Kaling is a woman who wears multiple hats and wears them well; director, producer, actor and her foray as an author, all are equally delightful. This gabby memoir chronicles Mindy’s nerdy childhood and rise to stardom in the vein of blog entries, sprinkled with her unabashed love for and critique on all things girly – fashion, romcoms and fad diets. Kaling’s incontestable comic prowess and spot-on punchlines show she’s no Hollywood airhead, but is comfortable in her own skin and weight, is intelligent, self-assured and spares no one from her riffs, most of all herself. We’ve found our new BFF.
