Nothing Like I Imagined Publisher's Summary

2021 Audie Award Nominee for Best Humor Audiobook

In these fresh and hilarious personal essays, Mindy Kaling gives the inside scoop on her new role as single mom, the perks of being her own husband, and how she deals with social anxiety even at the most glamorous A-list parties. In between, the beloved actress, writer, and Hollywood power-bruncher gets Kanye West’d at her best friend’s birthday, thwarts an “only in LA” crime, and learns what it means to have it all.

Kind of Hindu
What if only kind of knowing your family’s heritage is actually kind of lame? For Mindy, the search for an answer begins with an edible arrangement of chocolate strawberries and a Hindu priest.

Please Like Me (But Keep Away)
Freaked out by her fortieth birthday, Mindy reflects on the importance of good friends - and the mortifying obligations it takes to keep them.

Help Is on the Way
When a friend real-talks Mindy into hiring a baby nurse, she finds the help she needs - and so much more - in this soulful essay by the acclaimed writer, actress, producer, and director.

Searching for Coach Taylor
A totally relatable essay on showing up to adult life alone. Pros? Mindy can marathon any Christine Baranski show she wants. Cons? Dealing with married couples and their condescension at cocktail parties.

Once Upon a Time in Silver Lake
All Mindy wants is a night out… But what does the scary stranger in the driver’s seat of her ride want? Find out in a nerve-wracking mini-drama by the New York Times bestselling author of Why Not Me?

Big Shot
Is $2,000 a lot to drop on someone else’s dinner, just to be a Big Shot? Hell yeah! But what if nobody notices that you - one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” - picked up the tab?
