Dunder Mifflin Receptionist to Publish Debut Novel

By

Three Rivers Press announced today that it will publish Monday Sessions, the debut novel from Ellie Kemper — better known as Erin on The Office — in 2012. A comic account of the life of a Manhattan psychiatrist named Dr. Amy Rice told through her diary entries and patient files, it'll be co-written by Kemper and here younger sister, Carrie, a staff writer on The Office. Well, Mindy Kaling's book deal just got a little bit less special. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
