Description

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 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
