Amazon announced Mindy Kaling’s upcoming essay collection on Tuesday, which is releasing to fans in Summer 2020. Kaling’s essays will be available for free to Prime and Kindle Unlimited customers. You even have the option to download the collection as a Kindle eBook or as an Audible audiobook, which Kaling will narrate herself.
You can find the collection right here on Amazon, as well as Kaling’s collection of best-sellers.
Already a best-selling author, actor, and producer, Kaling shares her stories from the latest chapters of her life. These include the ups and downs of “being her own husband, friendship in the time of babies, watching The Handmaid’s Tale while pregnant, and hanging with fabulous and inspiring women like Reese, Sandy, and Oprah.”
As we mentioned earlier, Kaling is already a best-seller thanks to her memoirs; they include Why Not Me? and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?.
“It’s so exciting for me to share the secrets of how I balance being a professional writer, actor, and single mom in a new collection of essays,” says Mindy Kaling. “I mean, it would be so exciting to share those secrets. I don’t have them. Like, not even close. This morning I bribed my baby with a remote control to get my car keys back. But I do have funny stories about my life and I can’t wait for you to read them.”
This summer, Kaling will star in the Amazon Studios film “Late Night” in theaters nationwide on June 7th alongside Emma Thompson, Hugh Dancy, Reid Scott, Denis O’Hare, Paul Walter Hauser, John Lithgow, and Amy Ryan. Kaling also co-wrote and produced the film, which was acquired by Amazon Studios at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
“Working with Mindy Kaling is an absolute dream project for Amazon Publishing, where every day our guiding light is to strive for the best not only for our readers, but for our authors as well,” says Mikyla Bruder, Publisher of Amazon Publishing. “Whether she’s delighting fans on-screen or on-the-page—as The Office’s Kelly Kapoor, The Mindy Project’s Mindy Lahiri, Molly Patel in the upcoming film Late Night, or as a New York Times bestselling memoirist—Mindy is guaranteed to entertain. We’re privileged to be a part of bringing Mindy’s deeply personal essay collection to life, and can’t wait for readers to laugh, cry, and fall in love with her all over again.”
“Amazon Original Stories is focused on offering our readers and listeners binge-worthy narratives, and Mindy Kaling is the perfect author for this,” says Julia Sommerfeld, Editorial Director of Amazon Original Stories. “Mindy is a truly innovative storyteller and her hilarious and heartfelt essays are unputdownable. We’re certain that once you read one, you’ll have to finish the whole collection!”
“I’m excited to be doing this collection with AOS,” says Richard Abate, 3 Arts Entertainment. “It is an exciting format for writers who want to reach the widest audience possible and still deliver their work in a bingeable format.”
