My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands

Chelsea Handler

I have to admit this isn’t the kind of book I would normally pick up, and for anyone with a sensitive disposition – well it’s most definitely not for you! Depending on your sense of humor you’ll either be completely outraged or think it’s one of the funniest books you’ve read in ages.

Chelsea Handler certainly had a very early awareness of sexuality as she witnessed her parents having kinky sex at Age 7 but instead of being shocked by the event, she photographed it! She takes the reader on a tour across America in her search for sexual satisfaction encountering all manner of questionable men along the way.

Clearly an expert at thinking on her feet to get out of awkward situations, she manages to convince people that (for example) her family owns American Airlines, that she's pregnant but her heavy drinking is justified because she's giving the baby up for adoption and that her illiterate Cuban father was smuggled into the US in an inner tube!

She certainly knows how to tell a terrific story and recounts her sexual encounters and near-misses with a hilarious and brutal honesty. If you're a fan you can keep up with her latest news at Chelsea Handler's website.
