Mindy Kaling – Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (2011)

MindyKaling

Another hilarious read from another incredibly funny woman. Through her writing Mindy Kaling reveals that she is a completely different person from her character on the Office. (Also on the Mindy Project although this book was published before the show started)

The best parts of her book included her anecdotes and stories about the Office, and her sworn “frien-imie” Rainn Wilson. I was always jealous of Mindy’s and B.J Novak’s interactions in real life (twitter arguments, instagram fights, etc) and her stories about working with Rainn make me even more jealous.

Mindy is a great writer, which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering her main role on the office was that of a writer. I think that in most cases her character takes over, and people forget that she is a writer first, and an actress second. My only criticism was that at times, Kailing appears to be trying a bit too hard to be Tina Fey. That being said, Bossypants was amazing so I can’t blame her. I also just have to say, I don’t think anyone will ever understand how much I appreciated Mindy’s desire to remake A League of Their Own. That movie is flawless, much like Mindy herself.
