London Overground : A Day's Walk Around the Ginger Line Paperback



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 - and 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 cafes, 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).
