I bought Mindy Kaling’s “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” (Amazon) because I absolutely adore The Mindy Project (Amazon) – a tv series about a smart, funny, curvy woman of colour that I think passes the Bechdel test every episode.
The book didn’t disappoint – it was hilarious, and had me giggling quietly to myself in public places. Like Bossypants (Tiny Fey, Amazon) she doesn’t cover the unbelievably hard work it must have been to achieve the level of success she has, but that didn’t bother me the way it did in Fey’s book, because it read more like a series of hilarious anecdotes than any kind of career narrative.
Loved it. LOVED IT! Recommend. And if you haven’t seen the TV show yet, get on that. It’s amazing and season 2 is just starting.
