In conversation with Elizabeth Day

Following a sell-out ThinkIn in the newsroom last year, award-winning writer and podcaster Elizabeth Day returns to Tortoise for a digital ThinkIn about her new book, Failosophy, which presents a new blueprint for how to cope when life doesn’t go to plan. The ‘seven principles of failure’ synthesise all she’s learned from her own life, as well as insights from the guests on her award-winning How to Fail podcast and stories shared by readers and listeners.

Elizabeth Day is the author of four novels and Sunday Times bestelling memoir, How to Fail. Her acclaimed debut Scissors, Paper, Stone won a Betty Trask Award and Home Fires was an Observer book of the year. Her third, Paradise City, was named one of the best novels of 2015 in the Evening Standard, and The Party was an Amazon bestseller and a Richard & Judy bookclub pick. She is also an award-winning journalist and has written extensively for The Times, the Telegraph, the Guardian, the Observer, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle. She is currently a columnist for the Mail on Sunday’s You magazine and host of the iTunes chart-topping, award-winning podcast, How To Fail With Elizabeth Day.
