Overview

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.

Recipe

The Elvis Presley peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich

This sandwich is, of course, in very dubious taste. But exercising dubious taste is all part of the whimsical hungover experience. And, anyway, this post-modern hymn to American excess between two slices of bread, this portion of rock and roll history, this hearty helping of artery-clogging flimflam, is far more than a mere sandwich—it is a legend.

4 thick slices good-quality fresh white bread
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1 banana, mashed with the back of a fork
1 tbsp honey
8 slices free-range streaky bacon butter, for frying


Thickly spread each slice of bread with the peanut butter. Cover two slices with the mashed banana and drizzle with honey.

Grill the bacon until crispy then place on top of the banana, dividing it between the two slices of bread. Top each sandwich with a second slice of bread. For extra calorific value (and authenticity), carefully fry each sandwich in butter.

If this sandwich becomes a habit, get friendly with a cardiac surgeon. You may need one.
