>The comic novel Love Monkey by Kyle Smith, a PEOPLE Associate Editor, follows the dating misadventures of a wisecracking but soul-searching journalist who is 32 but often acts like a 13-year-old. After falling hard for a lovely coworker, he muses, "This girl is like cleaning behind my refrigerator: a once in a lifetime thing." ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY called Love Monkey "hilarious...a helluva lot of fun."
