'Where have you been all our lives, Mindy?' Glamour

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives- comedienne, actress, obedient child of immigrant professionals and, now, writer. With a blend of witty confessions and unscientific observations, Mindy writes about everything from being a timid young chubster afraid of her own bike to living the Hollywood life, dating, friendships and planning her own funeral - all executed with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls.

'Hilarious' Elle

Industry Reviews

"[Mindy Kaling is] like Tina Fey's cool little sister. Or perhaps... the next Nora Ephron." * The New York Times *
"Kaling doles out neurotic charm and hilarious everywoman musings." * Elle *
"Kaling's debut is the perfect combination of memoir and hilarious, goofy lists that you'd expect from The Office star and writer-executive producer." * Allure.com *
"Reading her words is like listening to a likably gabby friend chatter happily over generously poured glasses of red wine." * Washington Post *

Dissecting a modern day woman's brain - it's just so fluffy!

A pleasant light-hearted look at a woman's point of view about everything - not to say that it offers advice or opinions, because it's not. It's simply a glance inside Mindy Kaling's head... and it seemed a lot like mine in there. Some parts were random lists or stories about things, which had me laughing my guts out. Simply because they were random. And funny. And how I too suddenly blurt out the most obtuse and inappropriate things. Mindy Kaling is me and a brave woman suit! Heck no, Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal. I wouldn't go so far to say this book in hilarious. I don't think that was her goal in writing this book. Just like as a performer or comedian we're not meant to be performing monkeys 'on' all the time just for your enjoyment. It was like sitting down on the lounge floor in you pj's and having a gasbag with your girlfriends. I love how the structure was broken up into flashbacks, lists, stories and comments on pictures... it really was like how evenings go with my girlfriends, clutching a glass of bubbly reminiscing and making each other cackle until we snort. I did want it to be funnier though. Or more engaging. But I understand in doing so it would have either been too serious, or too silly. This that the right amount of everything to kick back and relax, and to just enjoy reading. I appreciate how Mindy simply blurts out what's on her mind. It's finding a voice for much of my internal dialogue; and whether she intended the book to be like this or not, after reading it, I felt that if we were to run into each other at a party would become fast friends. And that is a great tone to have of a memoir. Masterfully done. So many hot key topics discussed without being pretentious. I recommend this to anyone who loves memoirs, or just loves being a girl.
