Release Date :  2011-11-01
Description :  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?” <br />&#xa0;<br />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!<br />&#xa0;<br />In <i>Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, </i>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.<br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

2 Why Not Me?

Author : Mindy Kaling
Genre :  Humor  Books  Biographies & Memoirs 
Price :  $11.99
Release Date :  2015-09-15
Description :  <b><b>From the author of the beloved </b><i>New York Times</i><b> bestselling book </b><i>Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? </i><b>and the creator and star of </b><i>The Mindy Project</i><b> comes a collection of essays that are as hilarious and insightful as they are deeply personal.</b></b><br /><b> &#xa0;</b><br /> In <i>Why Not Me?,</i> Kaling 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.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> In “How to Look Spectacular: A Starlet’s Confessions,” Kaling gives her tongue-in-cheek secrets for surefire on-camera beauty, (“Your natural hair color may be appropriate for your skin tone, but this isn’t the land of appropriate–<i>this is Hollywood, baby</i>. Out here, a dark-skinned woman’s traditional hair color is honey blonde.”) “Player” tells the story of Kaling being seduced and dumped by a female friend in L.A. (“I had been replaced by a younger model. And now they had matching bangs.”) In “Unlikely Leading Lady,” she muses on America’s fixation with the weight of actresses, (“Most women we see onscreen are either so thin that they’re walking clavicles or so huge that their only scenes involve them breaking furniture.”) And in “Soup Snakes,” Kaling spills some secrets on her relationship with her ex-boyfriend and close friend, B.J. Novak (“I will freely admit: my relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell.”)<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Mindy turns the anxieties, the glamour, and the celebrations of her second coming-of-age into a laugh-out-loud funny collection of essays 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.

5 Like Brothers

Author : Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass & Mindy Kaling
Genre :  Biographies & Memoirs  Books  Humor 
Release Date :  2018-05-08
Description :  <b>The multitalented writers, directors, producers, and actors (as seen on <i>The League, Transparent, </i>and <i>The Mindy Project</i>)<i> </i>share the secrets of their lifelong partnership in this unique memoir.</b><br /><br /> Whether producing, writing, directing, or acting, the Duplass Brothers have made their mark in the world of independent film and television on the strength of their quirky and empathetic&#xa0;approach to storytelling. Now, for the first time, Mark and Jay take readers on a tour of their lifelong partnership in this unique memoir told in essays that share the secrets of their success, the joys and frustrations of intimate collaboration, and the lessons they’ve learned the hard way.<br /><br /> From a childhood spent wielding an oversized home video camera in the suburbs of New Orleans to their shared years at the University of Texas in early nineties Austin, and from the breakthrough short they made on a three-dollar budget to the night their feature film&#xa0;<i>Baghead</i>&#xa0;became the center of a Sundance bidding war, Mark and Jay tell the story of a bond that’s resilient, affectionate, mutually empowering, and only mildly dysfunctional. They are brutally honest about how their closeness sabotaged their youthful romantic relationships, about the jealousy each felt when the other stole the spotlight as an actor (Mark in&#xa0;<i>The League,&#xa0;</i>Jay in&#xa0;<i>Transparent</i>), and about the challenges they faced on the set of their HBO series,&#xa0;<i>Togetherness</i>—namely, too much togetherness.<br /><br /> But&#xa0;<i>Like Brothers&#xa0;</i>is also a surprisingly practical road map to a rewarding creative partnership. Rather than split all their responsibilities fifty-fifty, the brothers learned to capitalize on each other’s strengths. They’re not afraid to call each other out, because they’re also not afraid to compromise. Most relationships aren’t—and frankly&#xa0;<i>shouldn’t</i>—be as intense as Mark and Jay’s, but their brand of trust, validation, and healthy disagreement has taken them far.<br /><br /> Part coming-of-age memoir, part underdog story, and part insider account of succeeding in Hollywood on their own terms,&#xa0;<i>Like Brothers&#xa0;</i>is as openhearted and lovably offbeat as Mark and Jay themselves.<br /><br /><b>“Hilarious . . . The Duplass’s &#xa0;entertaining and energetic memoir gives their fans a clear look at the creative genius that drives them.”—<i>Publishers Weekly</i></b>
