MY HORIZONTAL LIFE by CHELSEA HANDLER

Chelsea Handler is a foul-mouthed, drunken, egotistical, politically incorrect slut. She's also hilarious. This "collection of one-night stands" delves into Chelsea's exploits as she, um, dates a male stripper, wakes up in bed with a midget with an outsized penis, acts as a beard--named Beulah--at her gay friend Nathan's prep school reunion, and gets drunk in more situations than you can shake a swizzle stick at.

Think Sarah Vowell meets Sarah Silverman. Think David Sedaris before he got off the meth. However you think of it, you'll laugh your ass off (even if you're sometimes a little ashamed of yourself for doing so) as you read these essays.
