When we reached the final pages of Mindy Kaling's first collection of memoirs, we wallowed in the plethora of unanswered questions. What would happen to our brave heroine? Would we ever find out if, indeed, people were hanging out without her? We were left hungry. But Kaling, The Office's Kelly Kapoor and the creator and star of The Mindy Project, will feed us soon. Jezebel reports that the actor/writer announced at PaleyFest that she will begin working on a second book, anticipating its publication within the next year and a half.
While Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? chronicles Kaling's younger years (and the anxieties that accompanied her through them), the yet untitled second memoir will focus on "the high highs and low lows of the past 18 months," likely documenting her experiences in the film and television industry.
So, what can we expect? Behind-the-scenes Office scandals? Deep, agonizing explications of maintaining your dignity while plagued with the spotlight? Acting tips on how to talk really, really fast? We'll know soon enough.
