Meet Martin Dorfman: cynic, hypochondriac, and burned-out screenwriter. In the midst of navigating his latest film script through Hollywood Development Hell--an agonizing journey even for a healthy person-- the forty-year-old Dorfman wakes up one morning with a mysterious disease. After a battery of medical tests, 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 Dorfman into the lunatic fringes of alternative medicine, where he encounters his innermost demons, as well as the beguiling Delilah Foster, a fellow hypochondriac. Will Dorfman find a cure? Will his movie get made? Will he run away with Delilah Foster? 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?
