My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One- Night Stands by Chelsea Handler

Opening with a story from when she was seven and her sister talked her into running into her parents’ room while they were having sex to take a photograph, this collection of stories and accounts of Chelsea Handler’s thoughts on the virtues of the one-night stand leaves you laughing. Most famous for her book Are you There Vodka, it’s Me Chelsea, this collection of vignettes of Handler’s often intoxicated romps through various men’s beds isn’t for the shy at heart.

From her short fling with a midget to her experiences with a stripper, each story is an honest, brutal account of fun and debauchery at the very best. Handler is a stand-up comedian turned author and is hilarious. Fans of Handler’s other books will find My Horizontal Life to be another fun look into the psyche of a wild girl. If you think discussions of sex should be private and timid, don’t pick this one up.
