Independence Day: A Broken Heart's Voyage around the USA

by Jim Keeble
     
 

Newlyweds are difficult to avoid in Niagra Falls. Each year 500,000 freshly hitched sweethearts book a room in one of the 55 motels offering heart-shaped jacuzzis, tiger rugs, and mirrored ceilings. That's 700 couples a day. Not the best place to be then, when your girlfriend rejects your proposal of marriage, and proposes instead that you go your separate ways.

Overview

Newlyweds are difficult to avoid in Niagra Falls. Each year 500,000 freshly hitched sweethearts book a room in one of the 55 motels offering heart-shaped jacuzzis, tiger rugs, and mirrored ceilings. That's 700 couples a day. Not the best place to be then, when your girlfriend rejects your proposal of marriage, and proposes instead that you go your separate ways. His self-esteem heading south, Jim Keeble decides to follow suit, hoping that the United States—and the women of America—can help mend his broken heart. He says viva to Las Vegas and the showgirls of the 21st century tries to catch a crab-catcher's daughter in historic Virginia, and cheers on an ex-cheerleader on a Dude ranch in Arizona.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
Nothing is funnier than someone elses romantic misery, and Keeble is hilarious.
