• Publisher's description. A stark and lyrical memoir of the steep descent into madness and the slow, agonizing recovery that follows. In 2013, Jay Griffiths suffered a devastating year-long episode of hypomania and extreme depression. Tristimania is the extraordinary, brave and painfully honest account of that year.

  • If bravery itself could write, it would write like she does.
