By the New York Times bestselling author, an outrageous
collection of personal essays about adulthood,
responsibility, and other potential disasters
Jenny Mollen is a writer and actress living in New York.
Until two years ago, 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.
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. It follows Jenny to
Morocco, where she embarks on a quest to prove to herself
that she can travel alone without reenacting a plotline from
Taken. It shows her confronting demons—most of them from
childhood, a few from the spirit realm.
And it culminates in Peru, where Jenny decides that maybe
the cure for her worries lies at the bottom of a cup of
Hilarious, outlandish, and surprisingly affecting, Live Fast
Die Hot reminds you that even if you aren’t cut out for
adulthood, at least you can be better at it than your mother.
