My Heart Is an Idiot: Essays : Davy Rothbart is looking for love in all the wrong places. Constantly. He falls helplessly in love with seemingly every girl he meets - and only rarely is the feeling reciprocated. In the most egregious example, Rothbart travels across the country to meet the love of his life he hasn't actually met yet, an Internet girlfriend . . . who turns out to be an Internet boyfriend.

His life is full of similar such adventures, as he hops in a car and tears across half of America with his heart on his sleeve. He's constantly coming up with outrageous schemes, but even when things don't work out, Rothbart finds meaning and humor in every moment. Whether it's humiliating a scammer who takes money from aspiring writers or playing harmless goofs on his deaf mother, nothing and no one is off-limits.

But as much as Rothbart is a tragically lovable, irresistibly brokenhearted hero, it's his prose that's the star of the book, each daredevil sentence showing how things that seem so wrong can be so, so right.
