Publisher's Summary

A totally relatable essay on showing up to adult life alone, by the singular (and single) writer, producer, and star of Late Night.

In lieu of a perfect, hypothetical future husband, Mindy Kaling is thinking a lot about being single. Pros? She can marathon any Christine Baranski show she wants. Cons? Dealing with married couples and their condescension at cocktail parties. But until a gorgeous, morally flawless, preferably tall TV dad materializes in three dimensions, Mindy can cope with waiting it out (from the driver’s seat).

From the acclaimed writer, actor, director, producer, and New York Times bestselling author comes Nothing Like I Imagined. In these essays, Mindy Kaling shares the latest chapters of a multitasking life in Hollywood. Listen to them in a single sitting. They’re pitch-perfect.

She's Fun !

Who wouldn't want to go to a party with Mindy? Just don't pity her single motherhood. What it comes down to is there are pros and cons to every lifestyle.

Tiaras

I love listening to Mindys books. Hers are the only books I can listen to repeatedly. So funny and some great ideas. Note to self- buy a tiara for my expecting daughter in law :)

she's charming and tells good stories

I enjoyed listening to this series, though I laugh a little at her musings sometimes, as I'm old enough to be her mom.

A Relatable Piece of Entertainment

Loved it. Had no idea what to expect because didn't read the overview and I just needed to spend my Amazon credits. I figured it could be a good bedtime story.

Turns out this was the most relateable piece of work to my current state of life! Entertaining, reflective, and completely relatable and true!

The piece was wrapped up perfectly by summarizing that whole this is how we feel today we are often growing and changing and could change our minds in the future. Way to go, Mindy!

find out who Mindy liked

Even celebs have celeb crushes. Narrated by the author, short story feels like a phone call with the actress about her day. Tidbits about her life in each page.
