Annals Of Drinking: A Few Too Many: “Of the miseries regularly inflicted on humankind, some are so minor and yet, while they last, so painful that one wonders how, after all this time, a remedy cannot have been found. If scientists do not have a cure for cancer, that makes sense. But the common cold, the menstrual cramp? The hangover is another condition of this kind.”

Amis described the opening of Kafka???s ???Metamorphosis,??? with the hero discovering that he has been changed into a bug, as the best literary representation of a hangover.
