Description

Of all the charming misfits on television, there's no doubt Raj from The Big Bang Theory--the sincere yet incurably geeky Indian-American astrophysicist--ranks among the misfittingest. Now, we meet the actor who is every bit as loveable as the character he plays on TV. In this revealing collection of essays written in his irreverent, hilarious, and self-deprecating voice, Kunal Nayyar traces his journey from a little boy in New Delhi who mistakes an awkward first kiss for a sacred commitment to the grown man who meets and marries a former Miss India in an elaborate seven-day event chronicled in "My Big Fat Indian Wedding." In between, he grapples with feelings of loneliness and being an outsider, tells his parents he wants to be an actor, and offers a bold new theory to explain to a skeptical world "Why being an Indian is cool."--Adapted from book jacket.
