Description

Iain Sinclair is the author of numerous works of fiction, poetry non-fiction, including Lud Heat; White Chappell, Scarlet Tracings; Downriver; Radon Daughters; Lights Out for the Territory; Rodinsky's Room, with Rachel Lichtenstein; Landor's Tower; London Orbital; Dining On Stones; Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire and Ghost Milk; American Smoke and London Overground.

Tobias Hill is promised absences but finds fame in Iain Sinclair's high-rise collection, London: City of Disappearances. The strength and weakness of the book is its hubbub of voices, some of them worth listening to, others as insistent and meandering as those of garrulous drunks. Some contributions - Alexis Lykiard's invidious character assassination of Alan Sillitoe, Jeff Nuttall's hectoring homage to Tom Raworth - can be said to be interesting in their soapbox fervour, the authors themselves as dynamic in their way as Speaker's Corner demagogues; but it is a limited kind of interest at best.

The perfect companion to the city. 'Exhilarating, truly wonderful, a cavalcade of eloquent writing. London demands an anthology like this to remind us of the irascible quirkiness of its residents, and we have Sinclair to thank for marshalling such a perverse and ultimately pleasurable exercise' Independent on Sunday

Experience the inner London. Read this.

I was very disappointed in this book.
Almost every page has printing errors
and the book is in too large a font.

Writing is very uneven in style and content.
I am a fan of Iain Sinclair-but his editing
of the pieces is poor.

I want a refund !
