I love a clever writer. I love humor when you’re least expecting it and I love when it’s off the wall. So I’m not sure why it took me so long to buy and read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling. As usual, I’m slow on the draw.
Once I got started, I couldn’t stop reading. I actually read this in about twelve hours where I ignored my children, sleep, and housework. Her book is funny and I loved hearing her behind-the-scenes commentary on being a writer in Hollywood, being a women in the male-dominated comedy world, and stories from working on The Office. Kaling is self-depricating which is my favorite type of humor and she’s smart, two things that make her easy to read and fun to watch on TV.
If you’re looking for an easy, funny read that will end with you wanting to be best friends with the author, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling would be a great next read.
