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

[Cover]

Best known for her role on "The Office" and her new TV show, "The Mindy Project," Mindy Kaling published this autobiographical collection of essays in 2011.

She asks questions the average, non-famous person in their mid-20s to mid-30s might ask. It's like having a conversation with her. There's a chapter about the photos that were in her Blackberry at the time of writing. There's another that details what she would want her funeral to be like. She also has a chapter (if you can call it that) that is nothing but a list of suggested alternate titles for the book.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) not as "put-together" as, for example, Tina Fey's Bossypants, but if you like Mindy Kaling or just like reading books by comediennes, this is a lovely quick read.
