In this raucous collection of true-life stories, actress and comedian Chelsea Handler recounts her time spent in the social trenches with that wild, strange, irresistible, and often gratifying beast: the one-night stand.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.

This one is better than the previous one, fun, easy to read and quite funny. It could be a good summer read or something that you want to read just for fun

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...

I never intended to read this book. I'm not much of a fan of Chelsea Handler-mostly out of indifference and the idea of reading a memoir about one night stands just isn't the type of book I see myself reading but as a joke I "stole" this book from my sister, fully intending to replace it. Instead ...

is this writer suicidal? I'm not a huge fan of comedy or standup comics in general, but it was hard to shake the impression of the famous "totally depressed behind the funny-makeup clown" pop-culture icon. maybe I'm reading too much into this; other readers seem to like this work (currently @ 3.78, ...
