Customer Reviews

I am truly overwhelmed by The Outrun. Part rediscovery-of-self memoir, part salute to nature and her Orcadian upbringing, completely engrossing. Amy writes with raw words, often beautiful and harsh in turns. The Outrun (the book, not the patch of wild near the farm of her youth) follows Amy through London and alcoholism, chasing wild highs and life's edges, to her return to the islands of the North, to discover new ways of life for herself. Honestly this book is wonderful, blunt and honest, delicate and hopeful. If you like H is for Hawk, this would be a great next step.
