Kaling 'Panicking' About Upcoming Book
THE OFFICE star MINDY KALING is "panicking" about putting together her book of personal essays - because there's so much "pressure" to tell interesting stories about her life.
The actress/writer is set to release The Contents of My Purse next autumn (11) - a book of notes and personal anecdotes about fashion, finding love, and life after 30.
But the funnywoman isn't sure what stories to share - and she worries her book will be a big flop.
She tells New York Magazine, "I’ve been panicking about it every day since the deal was made. There’s a lot of pressure to tell a story about my life and have it be like, 'And that’s when I realised I could be as good of a mom as my own mother.' And I have no stories like that, and no transformative summers in Nantucket or whatever."
