Both a medical mystery and a family saga, "What's Wrong With Dorfman" is the story of Martin Dorfman, cynic, hypochondriac, and burned-out screenwriter. In the midst of navigating his latest film script through Hollywood Development Hell, the forty-year-old Dorfman wakes up one morning with a mysterious disease. His doctors conclude that he is in perfect health, but Dorfman is convinced he is dying and sets out on an odyssey to find a diagnosis. Heralded by the "Wall Street Journal" as "a funny and surprisingly moving story written at the intersection of shtick and angst," "What's Wrong With Dorfman?" follows the title character as he encounters his innermost demons, confronts his past and takes up with the beguiling Delilah Foster, a fellow sufferer. Will Dorfman find a cure? Will his movie get made? Will he run away with Delilah? And most importantly, what indeed is wrong with Dorfman? More than just the plight of one man, "What's Wrong with Dorfman?" reflects the angst of modern society and asks the question, "Aren't we all a little nuts?"show more
