No, not the former president's daughter. I'm talking about Chelsea Handler, who's been on the best seller lists for several months with her second book, Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea.
I received a press release today promoting Jackie Collins' participation in the "Guest Books" feature in the Barnes & Noble Review. Each week a new author lists his or her three favorite books. Collins' favorites are Mario Puzo's The Godfather, F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Luke Rhinehart's The Dice Man.
But I digress.
I was more interested in a previous participant -- Handler. I didn't know much about the comedian until her book was doing so well on the charts. So I decided to check out her E! Entertainment talk show, "Chelsea Lately." Turns out, there's a quirky, funny oddball beneath the blond facade.
Handler lists the following as her three favorite books:
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand: "It's nice to read a book about something that has nothing to do with anything you could ever think of."
One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus: "Even though it is a novel, you know these events really happened to these women."
Naked by David Sedaris: "Laugh-out-loud funny. No Matter how many times you read it, it is still funny."
