Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling

mindy.kaling.jpgYou may know Mindy Kaling as drama queen boy-crazy shopaholic Kelly Kapoor from the hit T.V. show "The Office," but did you know she is also a writer, executive producer, director and all around funny woman extraordinaire? It's true! In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? Mindy (or Min as I like to imagine myself calling her) shares hilarious stories from childhood through her "Office" days. We may not all be able to relate to awkward meetings with Hollywood execs, but awkward childhood photos and Conan O'Brien obsessions? Yep.

Mindy's irreverent humor especially shines through when she explores the formation of her comedic voice, her journey to television stardom, and musings on the nature of friendship (all friends should read the Best Friend Rights and Responsibilities chapter. As Min would say, it's both your right AND your responsibility). A little self-effacing, a little chatty, and all kinds of awesome, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? is a welcome edition to works by smart, funny and successful women such as Tina Fey and Hilary Winston.
