A Love Letter from a Stray Moon
by Jay Griffiths

“A wonderful book.” John Berger

“An extraordinarily beautiful prose poem.” Niall Griffiths

“A stunning allegory about love, art and revolution.” Barry Lopez

“I feel lucky to have read it and it left me in awe.” Lemm Sissay

A Love Letter from a Stray Moon reimagines the exceptional life and uncompromising art of Frida Kahlo, and does so allegorically, using Kahlo as a cipher for the experiences of the women – including the author – who identify with her.
