Shortlisted Wellcome Book Prize 2017

An exhilarating nature memoir about recovering from alcoholism in Orkney that was a runaway hit.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WELLCOME PRIZE 2016 SHORTLISTED FOR THE WAINWRIGHT PRIZE 2016 At the age of 30, Amy Liptrot finds herself washed up back home on Orkney. Standing unstable on the island, she tries to come to terms with the addiction that has swallowed the last decade of her life. As she spends her mornings swimming in the bracingly cold sea, her days tracking Orkney's wildlife, and her nights searching the sky for the Merry Dancers, Amy discovers how the wild can restore life and renew hope.

‘Liptrot has lived her life on the edge of things, literally and metaphorically. Her beautiful book gives a wonderfully evocative account of both, blending searing memoir with sublime nature writing.’
The Independent on Sunday

‘Will no doubt sit alongside Richard Mabey’s Nature Cure and Helen Macdonald’s H is for Hawk – the sheer sensuality of Liptrot’s prose and her steely resolve put her right up there with the best of the best.’
New Statesman
