'Tristimania' with author Jay Griffiths

author, Jay Griffiths

author, Jay Griffiths

We and our customers have followed Jay's writing journey, through her books and her readings here.  From Pip, Pip, and Wild, to Kith, and A Love Letter to a Stray Moon, we've become familiar with Jay's idiosyncratic 'sideway's look' endowed with such richly informed eloquence. We know that Jay does not shy away from difficult subjects, ones close to her heart.
Yet the subject of her newest book was, in effect, foist upon her:
Tristimania transports us
'from a desperate night alone in the snow-blanketed countryside, tempted by a roomful of glinting knives . . .through the landscapes of Spain and the wilderness of her own psyche.'

Jay will talk about how that particular journey,
ing in a pilgrimage, of sorts, came about.

to be sure of a seat, please book in advance

Jay Griffiths has shown in her previous books how fearless an explorer she is of the external world. Now she takes us into another world, even larger, even wilder, one with even greater perils and mysteries to be plumbed and suffered, and brings back even stranger truths.
— Philip Pullman
