A raw and poetic account of a mind lost in madness – and how the author found her way back from the wilderness. In 2013, while completing work on her last book, ‘Kith’, Jay Griffiths suffered a devastating year-long episode of hypomania. ‘Tristimania’ is the lyrical and painfully honest account of that year. Lost in the depths of her illness, Jay eventually decided to walk the Camino de Santiago – undertaking this ancient pilgrimmage in her fragile condition despite medical advice against it – determined to find a kind of cure for her torment.
