Why Not Me?

Amazon.com Rating:

In Why Not Me?, Mindy 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.

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 -—this is Hollywood, baby. Out here, a dark-skinned woman's traditional hair color is honey blonde."); talks being seduced and dumped by a female friend in L.A. ("I had been replaced by a younger model.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."); and 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.")

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.

Description

"In Why Not Me? Mindy Kaling has solidified her position as 'most valuable friend.' Just like Mindy, these essays are exuberantly funny, deeply introspective and refreshingly thoughtful. From her relationship with BJ Novak and the guy who worked for the president, to creating her TV show and announcing the Emmy nominations, Mindy's just-between-us-friends approach makes you love her just a little bit more after each story... By all conventional measures Mindy Kaling should not be where she is, and that is the beauty of the stories she shares." — Deborah Bass, Amazon.com Reviews
