London: City of Disappearances

Author(s): Iain Sinclair

Travel Writing

"A book full of richness, unexpected enticements, short sharp shocks and breathtaking writing". ("Guardian"). Welcome to the real, unauthorised London: the disappeared, the unapproved, the unvoiced, the mythical and the all-but forgotten. It is 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").
