Review

Publisher's description. From London's master psychogeographer and the author of Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire, comes a new adventure into the city's ancient and modern secrets. This is a living history of the edgelands and forgotten spaces surrounding London Overground: a portrait of the shifting, changing metropolis as seen from the 'Ginger Line'. (Penguin)

Sometimes dark, sometimes wry... For the aficionado, London Overground will deliver all the delights of Sinclair's edgy and hard-edged prose; for those who do not know his work it is an accessible starting point for one of the most rewarding oeuvres in 21st century literature (Scotsman)

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)

Sinclair [is a] peerless London literary wanderer and street-level cultural archaeologist... delirious, often hilarious urban palimpsest where pin-sharp observation, cultural hauntings and offbeat memoir fuse in sentences that catch your breath like a lurid toxic sunset over Hackney Marshs (Independent)

For my money the most crucial and most bar-adjusting voice currently resonating in the English language.... Those who aspire to understand what is happening in modern writing should start here (Alan Moore)

From the Back Cover

'A walk around the circuit of the elevated railway, that accidental re-mapping of London, in a single day.'

The completion of the full circle of London Overground provides Iain Sinclair with a new path to walk the shifting territory of the capital. It is a route haunted by the unquiet voices of the city's many literary ghosts. 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.

'A delirious, often hilarious urban palimpsest where pin-sharp observation, cultural hauntings and offbeat memoir fuse in sentences that catch your breath' Independent

'A haunting vivisection of London. For the aficionado, London Overground will deliver all the delights of Sinclair's edgy and hard-edged prose, for those who do not know his work it is an accessible starting point for one of the most rewarding oeuvres in 21st-century literature' Scotland on Sunday

'Necessary and triumphant' Observer

'Utterly sincere, highly personal - and, for the most part, right' The Times Literary Supplement

'For my money the most crucial and most bar-adjusting voice currently resonating in the English language. Those who aspire to understand what is happening in modern writing should start here' Alan Moore

[Thumbnails of Lights Out for the Territory and London Orbital]
