by Mindy Kaling
September 20, 2012 Thomas Frank analyzes the U.S. political divide, Siddhartha Deb looks into the heart of India, Emmanuel Carrere writes about the 2004 tsunami, and comic actress Mindy Kaling laughs at everything. In fiction, Britain's Alan Hollinghurst follows the evolution of English society.
Mindy Kaling is an Emmy Award-nominated writer and an actress on NBC's The Office.
November 1, 2011 Mindy Kaling's humor is rooted in a type of circular logic that's all her own. Just consider this recent Tweet: "Can everyone buy my book please? I wanna quit the business and homeschool my kids real weird."
