Jay Griffiths is a writer, mostly of non-fiction books, and occasionally of fiction. Her books include ‘Pip Pip’, about the politics of time; ‘Wild’, about wildness and wilderness; and 'Kith', about childhood and the natural world. She often writes about indigenous cultures because, as she observes, “I think there is much that non-indigenous cultures can learn from indigenous cultures”. ‘Kith’ in particular focused on the need to cultivate and nurture childhoods that put imagination at their heart.
