A depressing little novella that reads much longer than the 80 pages listed. A story about a male journalist who replies to letters that are sent to the column "Miss Lonelyhearts". He is ill equipped to deal with the woes of humanity.

This isn't what I expected, I thought it would be much lighter in content but I should have guessed otherwise as it is listed on the Boxall 1000 list.
