Octavia Bright talks to Dan Richards

This Ragged Grace

Hay Festival 2023, 

Writer and broadcaster Octavia Bright talks to Dan Richards about her recovery from alcohol addiction, and the parallel story of her father’s descent into Alzheimer’s, as she discusses her new memoir. Moving between London, Cornwall, New York and more, This Ragged Grace is a story of navigating seemingly impossible things without old fixes, and about a reckoning with addiction, loss, self and hope in your twenties and thirties. Bright co-hosts the podcast Literary Friction and has also presented programmes for BBC Radio 4.
