Jay Griffiths


Tristimania tells the story of Jay Griffith’s devastating year-long episode of manic depression, culminating in a long solo pilgrimage across Spain. The book is a rare record of the experience of mania and shows how the condition is at once terrifying and also profoundly creative, both tricking and treating the psyche. In particular, it focusses on how literature might serve to alleviate the suffering and torment of mental illness.

Join Jay as she discusses her experiences of depression and recovery, considering what we can all learn from her story.
