Mindy Kaling, best known in her role as writer and actor on The Office, offers a refreshing perspective on life. In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, Kaling talks about her life, her family, and her career, as well as sharing her thoughts on random matters like the funniest moments in comedy and the list of things her character Kelly Kapoor would do that she would not.
The thing I liked the most was how real Kaling seems. She doesn’t hide behind any type of Hollywood glamour. She worked hard to get where she is and doesn’t seem to have lost any of herself along the way. I kind of just want to hang out with her (and I also want to hang out with Amy Poehler even more than I did before Kaling described how awesome she is).
This book will naturally be compared to Tina Fey’s Bossypants, but I think Kaling holds her own even in that comparison. This book is entertaining, smart, and funny. I only wish it were twice as long.
Mindy Kaling narrates this herself. That’s really all I need to say. Fabulous audio production.
