From the author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and the creator and star of the Fox TV Network romantic comedy series The Mindy Project comes a collection of hilarious and deeply personal essays. She shares her ongoing journey to find contentment and excitement in her adult life, whether it'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 you're constantly reminded that no one looks like you. She gives her tongue-in-cheek secrets for surefire on-camera beauty, she tells of being seduced and dumped by a female friend in L.A. and she muses on America's fixation with the weight of actresses. She spills some secrets on her relationship with her ex-boyfriend and close friend, B.J. Novak. Mindy turns the anxieties, the glamour, and the celebrations of her second coming-of-age into stories that anyone who's ever been at a turning point in their life or career can relate to. And those who've never been at a turning point can skip to the parts where she talks about meeting Bradley Cooper. Mindy Kaling portrayed the character Kelly Kapoor on the NBC sitcom The Office.
