Iain Sinclair - London Overground
London Overground por Iain Sinclair
Iain Sinclair explores modern London through a days hike around the London Overground route.Echoing his journey in London Orbital over a decade ago, Iain Sinclair narrates his second circular walk around the capital. Shortly after rush-hour and accompanied by a rambling companion, Sinclair begins walking along Londons Overground network, or, Ginger Line. With characteristic playfulness, detours into folk history, withering assessments of the political classes and a joyful allegiance to the ordinary oddball, Sinclair guides us on a tour of Londons trendiest new transport network - and shows the shifting, changing city from new and surprising angles.He is incapable of writing a dull paragraph Scotland on SundaySinclair breathes wondrous life into monstrous man-made landscapes Times Literary SupplementIf you are drawn to English that doesnt just sing, but sings the blues and does scat and rocks the joint, try Sinclair.
