    Dirty little secrets.... Every movie and TV star has one. So does every agent and manager. Some producers and studio execs have two or even three. I'm talking about an assistant. Someone to answer your phones, pick up your dry cleaning. Someone to hide your drugs. Your assistant knows what you eat, who you're sleeping with, and what medications you're taking. They listen in on your phone calls. They are the eyes and ears of Hollywood...and occasionally they talk.

    Would you try another book from Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff and/or Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff?

    no, his voice is not nice to listen too


    What was most disappointing about Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff’s story?

    you could never tell if the story was from a man or woman's point of view. The voices he used were really annoying and his inflections sometimes made no sense. I found myself wanting the book to end a lot.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff’s performances?

    no


    What character would you cut from Where's My F-cking Latte? (and Other Stories About Being an Assistant in Hollywood)?

    none in particular. they were all relatively the same. The stories weren't funny as much as repulsive. Nothing was overly unexpected

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) the most enjoyable?

    It was a pretty straight forward story. No big epic events that changed everything but she was also very honest about not the popular kid and wanting to pursue comedy when everyone else wanted to pursue makeup.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mindy was the best character but she was mostly the only real character of mention in the book


    Have you listened to any of Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    never listened to other stuff


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when she admitted to being ok with not being friends with the other girls because they were not as into Comedy or other things that she was.

    It's what he was raised to do. Most parents would hide or destroy any evidence so clearly demonstrating their child's failures, but-lucky for us-Greg Fitzsimmons's family has preserved each mistake in its original envelope like a trophy in a case, lest he ever forget where he came from.

    What did you love best about Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons (The Audiobook)?

    I like him. He told some stories that were not necessarily the most flattering to him but explained a lot about him. It was funny and honest. It also had some stories that were a more emotional topic but were not sappy. It was a book that both me and women could laugh at and relate to.


    What other book might you compare Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons (The Audiobook) to and why?

    lets just pretend this never happend by Jennifer lawson
    Autobiography of a Fat bride - Laurie Notaro
    Roseanarchy - Roseanne


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    it sounds more honest when he tells it because he doesn't sound like he is reading it just telling to you the story from memory.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    His poor mother

    In Autobiography of a Fat Bride, Laurie Notaro tries painfully to make the transition from all-night partyer and bar-stool regular to mortgagee with plumbing problems and no air conditioning. Laurie finds grown-up life just as harrowing as her reckless youth, as she meets Mr. Right, moves in, settles down, and crosses the toe-stubbing threshold of matrimony.
