Synopsis

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”
 
Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!
 
In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

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

Great read
January 24th, 2015
Irreverent and funny, it's easy to see what has made Mindy Kaling a successful tv comedy writer. If you enjoy any of her television work you will obviously enjoy this read, but I think it is valuable beyond that as well. In particular I think this is a book that young women would benefit from reading. Not just those interested in a similar career, but those who are learning about who they are and what they love, and how to shape that into a genuine and fulfilling adulthood.

More Mindy!
November 14th, 2014
I couldn't get enough of this book. Talking in her blunt fashion that never gets old, Mindy captures what it's like to be in a forever gabbing, gossiping, thinking, creating mind. It can get you into trouble but who cares, because you're just doing you. Mindy reminds you of this in her easy-to-read, funny manner.

You will be laughing out load with every page you read!

This book is just hilarious! If you’ve seen Mindy as Kelly Kapoor in The Office or as Mindy Lahiri in her new show The Mindy Project then you know what a comical character she plays in these roles and seeing as Mindy Kaling is just such an absolutely talented human being you would know that she was a writer for both shows, so this books will not disappoint. Not that Mindy is like the characters she plays on TV, but she will definitely makes you laugh just as hard.

A must-read for Mindy fans! A sweet and honest account of her childhood and early career. You probably won't be asked to write a book report on this, but you will be entertained.

Mindy's the best!
May 28th, 2014
Easy, bright, honest and all those other cliche things real book reviewers write. Read it! Had much fun making others wonder, "What is that guy reading?" Or, "Do you think he has a neurological disorder?" - cuz I don't remember how to spell Tourettes - is that it?!

If you love Mindy's dry sense of humour and want a glimpse into the life of a Hollywood writer (or Hollywood writer wannabe), this is your book.

I loves this book. It was hilarious. I kept laughing out loud the hole way through. If you are a fan of the office or The Mindy project, please read this book. It's an easy read. I read it all within a few hours. I just couldn't put the book down. Her personality and comedy are priceless.

Hilariously real and easy to read
January 26th, 2013
Mindy is absolutely hilarious. Reading her book, you feel she's just having a conversation with you over coffee. It's not forced or try-hard, it's just plain enjoyable. Definitely one to read.

We're best friends.
January 3rd, 2013
Not sure why identify so much with female comedians, but I love this book. Mindy's sense of humor reminds me of Amy Moore's, and who doesn't want to read a book by their best friend?!? It's no Bossypants, but it's not supposed to be. And in related news please read Bossypants. ;)
