Anhedonia, Here I Come!

“Annie Hall,” the Oscar-winning 1977 film by Woody Allen, was originally titled “Anhedonia.” 

So says Jon Carroll (and so agrees the New York Times, in this great little time capsule interview.) Anhedonia is “a psychological state where nothing gives a person pleasure.”

Thought: wouldn’t “Anhedonia, Pennsylvania” make a great sequel title for “Synecdoche, New York“?
