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

I really loved Mindy Kaling on The Office, and quite enjoyed the first season of The Mindy Project. Alas, I stopped watching the latter when the levels of self-absorption stopped being entertaining, so I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy reading this book, especially since excerpts veered over into unfairly judgmental territory. But that, I suppose, is why one shouldn’t judge a book by its excerpts. On the whole, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) is a charming, funny and honest, if hardly exhaustive, autobiography of a young woman who’s found success in comedy. It’s a great book for anyone interested in her life and how she did it, and a quick, light read for anyone wanting something humorous.
