About this item
Everything you need to know to assess, understand, and improve a hangover is here: dozens of comforting recipes, very clever graphic tests for analyzing your state of mind, and quizzes for tracking your progress.A good hangover brings its victim to a new state of mind—and one that, when looked at objectively, can be quite fascinating to its host: It can create an increased awareness of the body, a willingness to eat something usually off limits, and a fascination with the mind’s strange acrobatics. With P. G. Wodehouse’s six hangovers—The Broken Compass, The Sewing Machine, The Comet, The Atomic, The Cement Mixer, and The Gremlin Boogie—as a starting point, recipes are tailored to each specific malady, allowing the reader to find a recipe (or just a menu item) that precisely suits his state of mind . . . and body. Interspersed with the recipes are mind games, witticisms and graphic jokes, insights into hangover science, quizzes to see if you are still drunk or now just merely hungover, and more.
A lighthearted and accessible guide to surviving a hangover shares dozens of comforting recipes, graphic tests for assessing one's state of mind and quizzes for tracking the recovery process, in a reference that builds on P. G. Wodehouse's infamous six hangover profiles.
