From the author of the beloved New York
Times bestselling book Is Everyone Hanging Out
Without Me? and the creator and star of The
Mindy Project comes a collection of essays that are
as hilarious and insightful as they are deeply personal.
In Why Not Me?, Kaling shares her ongoing journey to
find contentment and excitement in her adult life, whether
itâ€™s falling in love at work, seeking new friendships in
lonely places, attempting to be the first person in history
to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever,
or most important, believing that you have a place in
Hollywood when youâ€™re constantly reminded that no one looks
In â€śHow to Look Spectacular: A Starletâ€™s Confessions,â€ť
Kaling gives her tongue-in-cheek secrets for surefire
on-camera beauty, (â€śYour natural hair color may be
appropriate for your skin tone, but this isnâ€™t the land of
appropriateâ€“this is Hollywood, baby. Out here, a
dark-skinned womanâ€™s traditional hair color is honey
blonde.â€ť) â€śPlayerâ€ť tells the story of Kaling being seduced
and dumped by a female friend in L.A. (â€śI had been replaced
by a younger model. And now they had matching bangs.â€ť) In
â€śUnlikely Leading Lady,â€ť she muses on Americaâ€™s fixation
with the weight of actresses, (â€śMost women we see onscreen
are either so thin that theyâ€™re walking clavicles or so huge
that their only scenes involve them breaking furniture.â€ť)
And in â€śSoup Snakes,â€ť Kaling spills some secrets on her
relationship with her ex-boyfriend and close friend, B.J.
Novak (â€śI will freely admit: my relationship with B.J. Novak
is weird as hell.â€ť)
Mindy turns the anxieties, the glamour, and the celebrations
of her second coming-of-age into a laugh-out-loud funny
collection of essays that anyone whoâ€™s ever been at a
turning point in their life or career can relate to. And
those whoâ€™ve never been at a turning point can skip to the
parts where she talks about meeting Bradley Cooper.
