As the advice columnist of a New York City newspaper, Miss Lonelyhearts feels daily the suffering and desolation of those writing in for his advice. Locked into a deep depression as the result of his work, Miss Lonelyhearts seeks comfort in drink, religion, and in the meaningless affair that becomes his downfall.

Written during the depths of the Great Depression, Nathaneal West's Miss Lonelyhearts is evocative of the public's disillusionment with the society of the time. The story has been adapted for film, the stage and the opera.
