    Rather challenging but the result was a rich pulsating sense of person and place The images could easily be employed towards either the gothic or the post apocalyptic, yet they are universal and omnipresent Characters laden with woe find they can go on, they must go on, tramps and lost archives litter abandoned hospitals and toxic sludge, yet the setting is the future Olympic Village One can think about Ballard or Blow Up maybe even Withnail and I.

    Iain Sinclair is an incredible prose poet, and his narrative is stunning in its imagination The crazed plot here centers around a search for a lost manuscript, but it s also about weather, terrorism, the mystical history of Britain, and boxing It s like an X rated Carry On movie with a screenplay by Thomas Pynchon, directed by Ken Russell.

    My feeble American brain got several chapters in and still had no idea what was happening.

    Soulful and mind bending.

    I learned that London is a miserable place to be an Iain Sinclair character, and about William Hope Hodgson s best book.
