Publisher's Summary

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?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    "Fun, light and entertaining"
    Would you listen to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) again? Why?

    I never watched the office, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mindy Kaling is a good writer, and tells the story well. I have a lot of books to read and listen to, so I don't think I would listen to this again -- but I plan to listen to her next book for sure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

    I love her description of herself - she's humble, funny and endearing.


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

    Your friend, Mindy


    Any additional comments?

    This isn't a literary tome -- it's just shear entertainment. I liked it very much. Go Mindy!

    Mindy does a great job reading the book and the guest speakers were a nice variation every once in a while. Very funny and relatable.

    "Enjoyable"

    I really didn't know much about the author before listening to this, and bought it based on impulse and the audible recommendation. It is interesting, light, funny, and flows well. And as an added bonus, I find Mindy's voice pleasant.

    "Funny, irreverent and honest"

    Mindy Kaling's writing and voice acting are perhaps even funnier than her role as Kelly Kapoor in The Office or Mindy Lahiri in The Mindy Project. I laughed, gasped and enjoyed every minute of her short essays about her life and random thoughts. I don't have any qualms about recommending this short audiobook to anyone looking for smart, hilarious writing. Really amazing to also get voices from Mike Schur and BJ Novak. I was deeply amused by Mindy's stories from sets, impressions of her Office colleagues and early life. I'm not sure if I would read this again, but I will definitely be picking up her next book.

    "Wonderful easy listen- like listening to a friend"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Hearing about Mindy's childhood and her early career.


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

    I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but I have to say that I love her voice. It's very friendly, happy and so distinctive that I can still hear her narration, even after finishing the book.
