Dan Boothby at AyeWrite Festival

In her extraordinary memoir The Outrun, Amy Liptrot returns to Orkney after more than a decade away, she is drawn back to the sheep farm where she grew up. Back on the land that was once home, memories of her childhood merge with her recent life in London and the hedonistic cycle of drinking that gradually consumed her. Dan Boothby had been drifting for more than twenty years, when, after a lifelong obsession with Gavin Maxwell's Ring of Bright Water trilogy, he moved to Maxwell's former home, a tiny island off the west cost. Beautifully written and frequently leavened with a dry wit, Island of Dreams is a charming celebration of the particularities of place.
