Christopher Griffith

about this book: • What is the trilogy about?
A journey into, through and out of mental illness

• What benefits does it offer my readers?
It charts the descent into and recovery process from depression – hope can come from crisis, tragedy doesn't always have to win the day

• What inspired me to write the trilogy!!?
It's wholly autobiographical, a record of my time fighting bipolar disorder

• Who is it intended for?
Poetry readers and those who may be interested in mental illness, either as sufferers themselves or having relatives and friends who may suffer from depression

• How long did I take to write it?
Several years

• Why did I choose this cover?
Fire for entering the abyss, smoke from a mountain as I chug through it, and a mottled sunset to depict the emergence though still affected state of the sufferer as he/she comes to term with his/her illness

• What was the hardest part of writing the trilogy?
Writing the poems helped alleviate my condition although penning some of them took me back to places I sometimes wish I had never revisited

• Did I do research for it?
Not really – all the poems come from my own experience although of course my reading history will have shaped them too

• Did I learn anything from it?
Yes, that framing a narrative for the traumas in your life can help you overcome them

• What do I want to say to my readers?
I really hope you enjoy the poems, and if so tell the world!!
