The Instant
The Instant | Amy Liptrot
2 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
'I loved this book' Raynor Winn, author of The Salt Path 'Utterly absorbing' Lucy Jones, author of Losing Eden Wishing to leave behind the quiet isolation of her Orkney island life, Amy Liptrot books a one-way flight to Berlin. Searching for new experiences, inspiration and love, she rents a loftbed in a shared flat and looks for work. She explores the streets, nightclubs and parks and seeks out the citys wildlife goshawks, raccoons and hooded crows. She looks for love through the screen of her laptop. Over the course of a year Amy makes space hoping for the unexpected. And it comes with an erotic jolt, in the form of a love affair that obsesses her. The Instant is an unapologetic look at the addictive power of love and lust. It is also an exploration of the cycles of the moon, the flight paths of migratory birds, the mesmerising power of Neolithic stonework and the trails followed by a generation who exist online.

Didn‘t like this memoir as much as per previous book (maybe to do with setting), but has a beautiful voice. Especially the attention paid to the natural world, even within a city

Amy Liptrit‘s writing is stunning. You added her joy and pain, when she feels the light and when she is struggling out of the darkness. I loved the Outun but this one is even better.
