Why Not Me?

Crown Archetype

From the author of the beloved New York Times bestselling book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and the creator and star of The Mindy Project comes a collection of essays that are as hilarious and insightful as they are deeply personal.
In Why Not Me?, 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.
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- this is Hollywood, baby . 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 "Player" tells the story of Kaling being seduced and dumped by a female friend in L.A. ("I had been replaced by a younger model.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.")
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.
Rezension
"Kaling has written a second book that's funnier, sharper and more confident than her 2011 collection of personal essays and pop culture riffs called Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). Even the title of that initial effort implied that Kaling was trying to find her place; the tone of this new one announces that she's found it and is more than comfortable inviting people to spend time with her there."- Washington Post
"Funny, thoughtful essays and anecdotes written in the star's trademark voice. But this time around, things are just little more grown-up...This is Kaling at the height of her power."- USA Today
"Mindy Kaling may be gearing up for the fourth season of her TV show, The Mindy Project , but that didn't deter her from writing another wildly entertaining and completely relatable book... Her first memoir, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) , spent time on several best-seller lists. Why Not Me? will certainly follow in its footsteps."- Associated Press
"Hilarious...Kaling knows her strengths, and plays to them brilliantly...Aside from that effortlessly conversational tone and her pitch-perfect humor, Kaling's biggest strength here is curatorial. She gives us the candy we came for - the advice, the anecdotes, the straight talk on body image - but sprinkles in something extra."- Entertainment Weekly , A-
" Why Not Me? is all that we've come to expect from the creator and star of The Mindy Project : refreshing, confident, genuine, and, yes, absolutely hilarious." - Refinery29
"...insightful personal essays from one of Hollywood's cleverest writers... Intrepid and often irreverent, Kaling humbly probes her own triumphs and defeats with laugh-out-loud results". - Kirkus Reviews
"Kaling's irreverent take on life is both uproariously funny and dead-on...Advice on a variety of topics-including why extensions make everyone more beautiful and how the world needs to start assuming that all young women are confident-make this an empowering and entertaining read."- Publishers Weekly
