Amy Liptrot: Traffic Islands Are for Lovers

Amy Liptrot’s first memoir, The Outrun, offered irresistibly readable reflections on alcoholism, sea swimming and solitary sobriety in Orkney. Her new book, The Instant, follows on from The Outrun as Liptrot moves to achingly cool Berlin, yearning for the city life, for love and for meaning. While surfing the dating sites, she notices the city’s wild urban parklands populated by cranes, goshawks and even raccoons. But will Berlin also deliver up love? Join Liptrot and chair Kirstin Innes to find out.
