Lisa Appignanesi
On Grief, Anger, Loss and Love

When writer Lisa Appignanesi’s partner of 32 years died, she was plunged into a state most of those who have suffered a bereavement will recognise: grief, rage, bewilderment, superstition; indeed an Everyday Madness that gave her the title of her extraordinary and deeply affecting book exploring the experience. Her exploration of the trauma of loss ranges from the minutely personal to the broadly social and psychiatric.

Chaired by Alex Clark, journalist, critic, broadcaster and Festival Artistic Director.
