Live Fast Die Hot by Jenny MollenBy the New York Times bestselling author, a searingly funny collection of essays that explores life as a reluctant adult.
Hi, Iím Jenny Mollen. Iím a writer and actress living in New York with a husband, two dogs, and a baby. When I got married, I made all sorts of vows and promises, some of which I intended to keep (and others I just said in the moment to make my husband come faster). My life was exciting, sexy, and ever so slightly eccentric, with a man who fully embraced my crazy. He understood my need to occasionally stalk his ex-girlfriend or wear her old beach caftans around our house. He showed compassion when I got kicked off of jury duty for accidentally befriending the defendant over lunch break. He even found it sweet when I invited our drug dealer to Passover seder so he didnít think we were only using him for drugs.
Then we had our son, Sid, and overnight, the fun-loving woman-child that my husband fell in love with was banished from our home. It was time to grow up, to be responsible, to brush my hair, to take vitamins, to send holiday cards, to listen to my voicemail. But what if I didnít want any of those things? What if I wasnít ready to be a role model because I still envisioned being discovered at the mall and becoming a real model? (Or at the very least a Top Model.) Sure, I was thirty-five but my boobs were only eighteen.
This book is about how terrifying and maddening it is to love something more than yourself. It addresses the important questions that all women face: Have I done enough with my life? How do I break up with my dogs now that Iíve met someone new? Is it weird to draw eyebrows on a baby? Is my house haunted? Will taking ayahuasca in Peru affect my sonís chances of getting into preschool?
Live Fast Die Hot is an unapologetic look at life after thirty, when I realized that maybe being terrified of responsibility just means that I actually care. And if so, Iím at least halfway thereóright?

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. And it culminates in Peru, where Jenny decides that maybe the cure for her anxiety as a mom lies at the bottom of a cup of ayahuasca. Mollen's second effort to show readers glimpses of her life, after her essay collection, I Like You Just the Way I Am, is by turns endearing and off-putting. Mollen, the wife of actor Jason Biggs, describes her dizzying life, which includes taking ecstasy while pregnant and offering her husband a threesome to spice up a date night. When her son, Sid, is born, she writes a beautiful paragraph about holding him for the first time "I wasn't ready for kids. I was just ready for him" and promises the reader that this love for Sid would be her impetus to grow up. But the spirit that animated earlier adventures isn't fully tamed.
