In 2013, while completing work on her last book, Kith, Jay Griffiths suffered a devastating year-long episode of hypomania. This is a poetic account of a mind lost in madness - and how the author found her way back from the wilderness. It is the lyrical and painfully honest account of that year.

Description

Details

A stark and lyrical account of the psyche in crisis from the author of KithTristimania tells the story of a devastating year-long episode of manic depression, culminating in a long solo pilgrimage across Spain. Recording the experience of mania as has rarely been done before, Jay Griffiths shows how the condition is at once terrifying and also profoundly creative, both tricking and treating the psyche. An intimate and raw journey, Tristimania illuminates something of the universal human spirit.
