Why Not Me?

Why Not Me? 4 CDs. 4:57 hrs. Books on Tape. 2015. ISBN 9780553551761. $30. digital download. HUMOR
Following the success of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?? Kaling delivers a delightful collection of stories about her continuing quest to be an adult. The essays cover expected topics, such as appearance, fitting in, and the quest for friends, but are done in such a way that the listener feels they are chatting with an old friend over a glass (or four) of wine, the feeling of which is enhanced by Kaling's narration. Guest appearances by B.J. Novak and Greg Daniels are a nice touch. Some of the essays are more poignant and feel very personal, yet Kaling never strays into the "poor little famous me" realm.
VERDICT Overall, a charming and quick listen that is sure to leave a smile on the face of Kaling's fans.
