There are so many trends and (figuratively) viral things circulating at any given time that you might've missed this particular one.
But journalist Nora DeLigter became aware that a 1962 novelette called Cassandra at the Wedding was the "it" book among some circles.
Specifically, screenwriters, editors, and Ph.D. candidates are digging into Dorothy Baker's not-appreciated-at-the-time work.
In keeping with the viral pun, DeLigter set out to find who was "patient zero" for Cassandra at the Wedding's newfound popularity (and, in the process, shares what resonated so strongly with them about the book).
