A Love Letter from a Stray Moon
The Bookshop invites you to a very special evening as we welcome Jay Grifiths and celebrate the launch of her book A Love Letter from a Stray Moon.
A Love Letter from a Stray Moon is a fictionalised portrait of the intense and prolific life of Frida Kahlo. It explores the artist’s childhood polio, her devastating accident and her turbulent relationship with Diego Rivera, a story of passion, grief and transcendence. Partly a poetic depiction of a woman in flight from the hollowness of childlessness, the burning of betrayal and the constraints of physical pain, A Love Letter from a Stray Moon is also a love letter to the earth and a celebration of the rebellion which protects it – from Frida’s own politics to the present-day Zapatistas. It is a hymn to the revolutionary fire at the heart of art.
Jay Griffiths is author of Pip Pip: A Sideways Look at Time, Wild: An Elemental Journey and Kith: The Riddle of the Childscape. She is the winner of the Orion Book Award and the Barnes & Noble Discover Award for the best new non-fiction writer. She has also been shortlisted for the Orwell Prize and a World Book Day award. She lives in Wales.
