About the Book

As long as there have been hangovers, there have been attempts to get rid of them. The ancient Romans ate owl eggs, the Mongolians sheeps’ eyes, and the Syrians ground-up sparrow beaks. To this day, despite convenience-store shelves full of mass-marketed elixirs, a true antidote still eludes us. In Hungover: The Morning After and One Man’s Quest for the Cure, acclaimed journalist, novelist and witty raconteur Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall explores what happens to our bodies when we over-imbibe and all the ways, over time and through cultures, that we’ve tried to fix it. He delves into the infamous consequences of those rough mornings, drawing on the experiences of the greats of the past—from Noah to Churchill to pitcher David Wells—and reveals his own personal quest to find relief, and quite possibly a cure.

Hungover is an irresistible blend of culture, history, science, philosophy and mischievous humour. Part Simon Winchester, part Joshua Foer, part A. J. Jacobs and all Bishop-Stall, Hungover is both lamentation and celebration of a very human experience.
