Publisher Comments:

When Chelsea Handler needs to get a few things off her chest, she appeals to a higher power — vodka. You would too if you found out that your boyfriend was having an affair with a Peekapoo or if you had to pretend to be honeymooning with your father in order to upgrade to first class.

Welcome to Chelsea's world — a place where absurdity reigns supreme and a quick wit is the best line of defense.

In this hilarious, deliciously skewed collection, Chelsea mines her past for stories about her family, relationships, and career that are at once singular and ridiculous. Whether she's convincing her third-grade class that she has been tapped to play Goldie Hawn's daughter in the sequel to Private Benjamin, deciding to be more egalitarian by dating a redhead, or looking out for a foulmouthed, rum-swilling little person who looks just like her...only smaller, Chelsea has a knack for getting herself into the most outrageous situations. Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea showcases the candor and irresistible turns of phrase that have made her one of the freshest voices in comedy today.

Review:

"Where have I been all of Chelsea Handler's life? I had no idea how funny, how brilliant she is. She is too clever for words." Liz Smith, New York Post

Review:

"Chelsea Handler writes like Judy Blume, if Judy Blume were into vodka, Ecstasy, and sleeping with midgets and nineteen-year-olds." Jennifer Weiner, bestselling author of In Her Shoes

Review:

"Chelsea Handler is a terrific comedian and a hilarious writer." Jay Leno

I have never been a fan of Chelsea Handler but decided to read this book anyway. I'm glad I did because she is hilarious! I don't agree with a lot of thhings she does & I think she is not the nicest person, but dang it she is so funny! I can appreciate the predicaments she has gotten into and even though she doesn't treat her family very well, you can tell she really does love them. If you want a good laugh & enjoy reading about famous people, you will probably enjoy this book.

I got distracted by the mention on the first page of the excerpt of a 1967 Yugo. Yugos weren't sold in the US until the mid-1980s.

Later in the excerpt, Handler says that she hadn't done her homework because she was watching the season premiere of Charles in Charge. The scene was set in December 1984, but Charles in Charge premiered in October of that year. It was cancelled after one season and didn't get popular until it came back in 1987.

Factual inaccuracy might not matter to most people looking for a funny book to read, but if you're a pedant like me, try a few pages first.

My Sister was so impressed with this book, she gave it to me as a birthday gift and insisted I read it immediately. Like her, I was so impressed. This book is "laugh out loud" funny. I love, love, loved it and didn't want it to end. Chelsea handler is so wrong, she's right.
