The Hungover Cookbook

Based on P. G. Wodehouse’s classification, there are six different types of hangover: the Broken Compass, the Sewing Machine, the Comet, the Atomic, the Cement Mixer and the Gremlin Boogie.


The hungover sufferer needs to be able to diagnose their condition so that he or she is able to treat it accordingly.


The Hungover Cookbook provides both the tools for diagnosis and the recipes to help.


The book has been translated into Dutch, Finnish and German, and published in the US by Clarkson Potter. It has sold more than 50,000 copies worldwide.


It has been described as `Literary food porn for the hungover soul' by the LA Weekly and, according to Choice magazine, it ‘will bring a twinkle to the eye of anyone who has woken up on a Sunday morning feeling slightly worse for wear.’
