Publisher's Summary

All Mindy Kaling 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-racking minidrama by the New York Times bestselling author of Why Not Me?

When Mindy and her best friend, B.J. Novak, are approached on a dark street by a Charles Manson-esque character, naturally they’re unnerved. Turns out he’s a huge fan of The Office! Now Mindy’s feeling a little judgy. But the night is young, unseasonably hot, and getting weirder. Mindy and B.J.’s brief encounter with the drifter is about to take an unexpected turn in Sunset Junction.

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.

huh?

I was expecting a funny story. I didn't find humor in it. I got done with the story wondering what the purpose was.

Such a gripping short story that had me on the edge of my seat. She’s such a great reader too.

This just wasn't my favorite....still love her

I don't know what it was about this story that didn't hit me, but I just wasn't that fond of it.

Spectacular

Listening to all of these essays, I smiled all the way through interspersed with chuckles, smirks and actual throw-your-head-back-and-cackle-like-a-witch-laughs. Mindy Kaling’s performance is better than I could’ve imagined!
