In the past five years or so, a new sub-genre of the memoir and humor sections has sprung up: female TV comedy writers writing semi-autobiographical collections of essays. From Amy Sedaris to Chelsea Handler, just in the past year there’s been Tina Fey’s Bossypants, Hilary Winston’s My Boyfriend Wrote A Book About Me (which I still haven’t decided whether I liked or not), and, this month, Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
