One of my favorite television shows is The Office, so when I heard that Mindy Kaling, one of the main characters of the show had written a book of essays, I bumped her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) to the top of my reading list. I’m so glad I did, because it was hilarious from start to finish.
Her wry and intelligent humor first got recognized when after moving to New York City with her best friend, they co-wrote a play called “Matt and Ben” that portrayed the lives and events of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. She tells us all about the jobs she had on her rise to fame, a nanny, a production assistant, a writer for one night on Saturday Night Live and then of course she landed the Office gig as a writer and an actress.
Mindy Kaling invites you into her world and she doesn’t hold back, she shares the rules and regulations to a solid friendship, the requirements of a good man and wrote an essay simply explaining the pictures she’s taken on her blackberry in the last couple of months.
She also has the best introduction to her book EVER and you can check it out here to get a taste of the book you’re about to embark in reading. You’ll laugh, you’ll nod your head in agreement and you’ll wish she was one of your best friends because you’re sure you’d never hang out without her!
