stick with me. as a result of, regardless of what number of quirky memoir-curb-observational-essay collections by way of funny women you’ve were given on your shelves, you’re going to wish this one there, too.

Mindy Kaling is an American original. Born round, to overjoyed folks (“a part of me wonders if it even made them really feel somewhat prosperous, like have you seen our overweight Indian child? do you know how statistically rare that is?”), she grew up in New England, loved hanging out together with her circle of relatives, excelled in Latin, made her solution to Dartmouth and thence, as is decreed by way of legislation and custom, to Brooklyn, the place her sensible-ass jokes approximately subway rape netted her and her colleagues a personal town automobile to ferry them to their slave-salary activity as manufacturing assistants on a psychic-television display on cable.
