The Outrun: Amy Liptrot
5th November - Saturday
11am, Saturday 5 November
After more than a decade in London, aged thirty, unable to control her drinking, Amy Liptrot returns to the Orkney sheep farm where she grew up. There she begins her recovery from addiction. The Outrun is a beautiful, inspiring book about living on the edge, about the pull between island and city, and the ability of the sea, the land, the wind and the moon to restore life and renew hope.
Amy Liptrot has written for various magazines, journals, blogs and a regular column for Caught by the River. As well as writing for Orkney Today, and editing the Edinburgh Student newspaper, she has worked as an artist’s model, a trampolinist and in a shellfish factory. This is her first book.
