Amy, The 40-Year-Old Virgin

Kaling's character Amy in The 40-Year-Old Virgin essentially ruins David, played by Paul Rudd. He obsesses over their time together, can’t maintain a successful relationship with anyone else, and has an emotional breakdown when he runs into her. Amy holds her ground, keeps her cool, and has clearly been moving on with her life — she's seriously attending the dating event where they run into each other. David is there only to get his friend laid. Amy might appreciate a book like Give Me Everything You Have. She can relate to James Lasdun’s harrowing memoir of being stalked, and maybe she'll meet someone cute (and normal) at the bookstore.
