At thirty, Amy Liptrot finds herself washed up back home on Orkney, trying to come to terms with alcoholism and a life that spiralled out of control in London. The Outrun, winner of the Wainwright Prize 2016, charts her slow journey towards recovery, a beautiful, inspiring, hopeful book exploring the pull between island and city, and the allure of the sea and sky. Critically acclaimed author Malachy Tallack returns with The Un-Discovered Islands, an exploration of some of the world’s strangest places. Gathered in his beautifully illustrated book are two dozen islands once believed to be real but no longer on the map. This is an atlas of legend and wonder, of places discovered and then un-discovered. Merry dancers and memory, phantom archipelagos and myth: we can’t think of a more uplifting way to bring our 10th birthday to a close.
