Editorial Review – Growth and Change Are Highly Overrated

 

Title: Growth and Change Are Highly Overrated

Author: Tom Starita

Genre: Literary Fiction/Humor/Satire

This story is one of not-coming-of-age, the opposite of the classic Bildungsroman plot. Instead of Lucas James accepting responsibility, this is the irreverent, somewhat crass, and humorously self-absorbed story of a young man who won’t grow up, even when circumstances try to force him to change his ways.

Reading Sara Review: I might be late to the game with this book because most Ansari fans have probably already read this book.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? – Book Review

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me

 

So, full disclosure: I’m a pretty big The Office fan, and I watch The Mindy Project. So, yeah, I like Mindy Kaling’s brand of humor. It’s sort of self-effacing in a girl power-ish kind of way. If you’re not familiar with her work, she’s basically a comedy screenwriter and actress who was on The Office and now has her own show. This book is her memoir-slash-autobiography written pre-Mindy Project, but post-the Office.
