*A NEW YORK TIMES HUMOR BESTSELLER*
By the author of I Like You Just the Way I Am and a frequent Chelsea contributor, an outrageous collection of personal stories about motherhood, responsibility, and other potential disasters.
Jenny Mollen is a writer and actress living in New York. Until recently, her life was exciting, sexy, a little eccentric, and one hundred percent impulsive. She had a husband who embraced her crazy—who understood her need to occasionally stalk around the house in his ex-girlfriend’s old beach caftans and to invite their drug dealer to Passover seder (so he wouldn’t feel like they were using him only for drugs). Then they had their son, Sid, and overnight, Jenny was forced to grow up: to be responsible, to brush her hair, to listen to her voicemail. Searingly funny and surprisingly affecting, Live Fast Die Hot is a collection of stories about what happens when you realize that some things are more important than crafting the perfect tweet—and a reminder that even if you never thought you were cut out for parenting, at least you can be better at it than your mother.

Easy read and had me laughing the entire time. Always good to know there are other crazy people out there!
This book is guaranteed to make you laugh – or chuckle, at least. Yes, it is silly, it reflects total self-absorption and material envy. But it is funny. She says things I have wanted to say – but in a different way. She pulls no punches. My first chuckle came in the Introduction. She says she invited their drug dealer to Passover seder because she didn’t want him to think they were only using him for drugs. Yeah, you read that right. From knowing where to get the best knock-offs of Birkins, to thinking her newborn baby looks like Caesar from Little Caeser’s Pizza and hearing him say Pizza pizza” before he is taken away for a bath, to being convinced there’s a ghost in her house. Somewhat neurotic, definitely funny.
Minus the Morrocan rug and faous hubby, this was far more relatable than I expected. Having been a fan of Chelsea's for a few years, I thank her for havig you and Jason on her show!
