Tristimania: A Diary of Manic Depression

Hay Festival 2016, 

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 book Kith, Jay suffered a devastating, year-long episode of hypomania. She gives a lyrical and painfully honest account of that year. Lost in the depths of her illness, she eventually decided to walk the Camino de Santiago. Undertaking this ancient pilgrimage in her fragile condition against medical advice, she was determined to find a cure for her torment. Jay is the 2015-2016 Cymrawd Rhyngwladol Cymru Greadigol – Gwyl y Gelli/Creative Wales International Hay Festival International Fellow.
