My Heart Is an Idiot
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Davy Rothbart is looking for love in all the wrong places. Constantly. He falls helplessly in love with pretty much every girl he meets—and rarely is the feeling reciprocated. Time after time, he hops in a car and tears across half of America with his heart on his sleeve. He's continually coming up with outrageous schemes, which he always manages to pull off. Well, almost always. 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 (but side-splitting) 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. In the tradition of David Sedaris and Sloane Crosley but going places very much his own, his essays show how things that are seemingly so wrong can be so, so right.

The idiot heart
I finally know why I can't seem to make love last with anyone. My heart is an idiot, too. This is a beautifully honest collection of life stories that I'm sure everyone can relate to. Some, like myself, much more than others. At times I felt like I was reading words ripped from my very own mind and knowing that someone else was a love lost as me was more than comforting. One of my favorite books of all time.
