From Mindy Kaling, the author of the mega-bestseller Is Everyone Hanging Out without Me? and creator and star of The Mindy Project, comes a highly anticipated second book of hilarious essays, opinions, concerns, and advice.
Since the publication of her much-loved first book, Mindy Kaling’s life has changed significantly. Back then she played Kelly Kapoor, a side character on the popular series The Office. Now Mindy is the creator, producer, writer, and star of her own television show, The Mindy Project. She is, as she puts it, “a tiny bit famous,” the perks of which include being three assistants and two phone calls away from obtaining Bradley Cooper’s e-mail address and having convicts writing her fan mail from prison. She’s gone through some other major changes as well—she’s watched friends start their own families, and she’s grappled with her own balance of work and private life.
Mindy turns the anxieties, the glamour, the heartache, and the celebrations of her second coming of age into a laugh-out-loud funny collection of essays that anyone who’s ever been at a turning point in their life or career can relate to. And those who’ve never been at a turning point can skip to the parts where she talks about meeting Bono, encountering Elmo, what kind of snacks they have at a Vogue photo shoot, and what you should carry in your purse when you go to the state dinner honoring the president of France.
