About the Author

Amy Liptrot has published her work with various magazines, journals and blogs and she has written a regular column for Caught by the River out of which The Outrun has emerged. As well as writing for local newspaper, Orkney Today, and editing the Edinburgh Student newspaper, Amy has worked as an artist's model, a trampolinist and in a shellfish factory. This is her first book.

Reviews

* The Outrun is an astonishingly beautiful book. Amy makes most nature writing seem flat and pedestrian. Her account of her addiction and recovery is electric, sexy, immediate and raw, leaving the reader reeling in her wake. And yet she's also elegant, thoughtful and controlled. I'm struck too by her ability to make links between her own experience and the larger landscapes she inhabits, from London Fields to the Orkney islands. And yet despite this attentiveness to place, there's nothing parochial about her vision. This is a luminous, life-affirming book, and I have no doubt that I'll be pressing it into people's hands for years to come -- OLIVIA LAING
