It is not hard for me to appreciate a book simply by its title but this one takes the coolest title award. Chelsea Handler is a stand-up comedian and actress that also takes her stories and turns them into books of short stories. What I can’t figure out is if I like Chelsea or not as an entertainer. I’m not even sure if I thought the stories were mostly funny or mostly just weird. How is that for being objective?
Ok, let’s lay it out there. This collection of short stories is off-beat, wacky and weird. The reader may have a hard time reconciling the author with the stories and wondering if she is really that quirky or just likes making shit up. My guess is a combination of the two. Being short stories, the pacing is quick and there is little character development. 2008, 264 pages.
