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. Sheis 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. Loadedwith 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.
