It's always been a tradition of mind to start of the new year about a newspaper writer during the depression who is assigned the advice/agony column and how it exacerbates his already steep decline into depression and madness.
Oddly enough there are far fewer of these books then one would imagine.
Praised by great writers from Flannery O’Conner to Jonathan Lethem, Miss Lonelyhearts is an American classic. A newspaper reporter assigned to write the agony column in the depths of the Great Depression seeks respite from the poor souls who send in their sad letters, only to be further tormented by his viciously cynical editor, Shrike.
