Description

You've either done it or know someone who has: the one-night stand, the familiar outcome of a night spent at a bar, sometimes the sole payoff for your friend's irritating wedding, or the only relief from a disastrous vacation. Often embarrassing and uncomfortable, occasionally outlandish, but most times just a necessary and irresistible evil, the one-night stand is a social rite as old as sex itself and as common as a bar stool.



Enter Chelsea Handler. Gorgeous, sharp, and anything but shy, Chelsea loves men and lots of them. My Horizontal Life chronicles her romp through the different bedrooms of a variety of suitors, a no-holds-barred account of what can happen between a man and a sometimes very intoxicated, outgoing woman during one night of passion. From her short fling with a Vegas stripper to her even shorter dalliance with a well-endowed little person, from her uncomfortable tryst with a cruise ship performer to her misguided rebound with a man who likes to play leather dress-up, Chelsea recalls the highs and lows of her one-night stands with hilarious honesty. Encouraged by her motley collection of friends (aka: her partners in crime) but challenged by her family members (who at times find themselves a surprise part of the encounter), Chelsea hits bottom and bounces back, unafraid to share the gritty details. My Horizontal Life is one guilty pleasure you won't be ashamed to talk about in the morning.

  • (4/5)
    This book is wrong in so many ways.
  • (4/5)
    Chelsea Handler is hilarious! It was as though she was sitting with me narrating the entire time; she does a great job capturing her voice in words. I will definitely be reading her other books!
  • (1/5)
    Stupid, insipid...this was supposed to be funny, but really it's pathetic.
  • (2/5)
    Very disappointing.
  • (3/5)
    This book is strangely addictive... so many adjective come to mind... raunchy, fun, dumb, informative, learn-from-other's-mistakes, quick read, etc etc etc. I know it doesn't make any sense. But it is actually an ok book. She seems to have had fun writing it that's for sure!

    Listened to from Jul 26-30, 2012Audio Review -- I'm glad Chelsea Handler had a bunch of sexual escapades so I wouldn't have to. She's honest, funny, vulgar, and real. I only wish Handler herself narrated the audiobook...(not that the current narrator does a bad job!)Read in Dec 2008Not as funny as Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea, but still very entertaining. I <3 Chelsea Handler.
