    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?”

    Tabitha says: "Love it!"
    "So glad that Mindy exists!"

    Story
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mindy is not only my favorite character in this book, she might be one of my favorite characters period. For one thing, if she weren't in her own memoir it would be suspicious to say the least. For another thing, and maybe I wouldn't have realized this if she hadn't pointed it out but it's totally true, our world needs more characters who have always been good kids and weren't into being popular and worked hard to maintain their grades and yet are creative, sensitive, innovative, vividly funny people. We were listening in the car and I turned around and looked at my two fun, happy, straight-laced, straight-A daughters, and their eyes were huge. I asked how they liked the book so far and the oldest ~almost~ got teary as she answered, "Mom, she's us!"Besides that keenly sympathetic aspect, Mindy's stories are wide-ranging and funny and insightful and all ring with her very particular tone of truth.
