Summary
The authors frame this book as a "literary apothecary." The book contains an alphabetical listing of emotional, mental, and physical ailments such as shyness, a broken heart, paranoia, anxiety, baldness, a broken leg, and even caring for someone with cancer. Each ailment and hardship is followed by at least one suggestion for a novel that, according to the authors, serves as "literary medicine."
