PAPERBACK
Categories: Travel writing
Iain Sinclair explores modern London through a day's hike around the London Overground route. The completion of the full circle of London Overground provides Iain Sinclair with a new path to walk the shifting territory of the capital. With thirty-three stations and thirty-five miles to tramp - plus inevitable and unforeseen detours and false steps - he embarks on a marathon circumnavigation at street level, tracking the necklace of garages, fish farms, bakeries, convenience cafés, cycle repair shops and Minder lock-ups which enclose inner London. 'He is incapable of writing a dull paragraph' Scotland on Sunday 'Sinclair breathes wondrous life into monstrous man-made landscapes' Times Literary Supplement ' If you are drawn to English that doesn't just sing, but sings the blues and does scat and rocks the joint, try Sinclair. His sentences deliver a rush like no one else's' Washington Post
