Product description

Review

A stunning, wild, and gracefully rendered account of life in the Scottish hinterlands.

Lyrical, transitioning from the rush of drinking into the raw sensations of island life.

A lyrical, brave memoir.... It's this aptitude Liptrot has for marrying her inner-space with wild outer-spaces that makes her such a compelling writer--and one to watch.

Luminous.... Fresh, clear-eyed and unflinching.

Whether [Liptrot]... writes of walking along the wind-scoured coasts or taking polar-bear dips in the icy waters, her prose is spare, lean, and beautiful, much like the country about which she writes.

This magnificent memoir is a record of transformation in its truest sense... Orkney legends tell of seals changing into humans, but, here, Liptrot is the shape-shifter, peeling off her wetsuit like blubber after snorkeling in the ice-cold sea.

Worth reading for the descriptions of life on a 'beautiful, barely touched stretch of land.'

About the Author

Amy Liptrot received the Wainwright Prize for nature writing and the PEN Ackerley Prize for memoir for The Outrun. Formerly a writer for Orkney Today, editor of the Edinburgh Student, an artist's model, and a trampolinist, she lives in Yorkshire.
