This is a record of long journeys on foot, from Hackney to Chingford and down to the river, around the City in its "ring of steel", and through the heart of Westminster, Lambeth and Millbank. Sinclair writes about the graffiti and guerrilla politics of Dalston, about the cult of feral dogs, and helps to bury Ron Kray. He gains access to Lord Archer's apartment overlooking the river, and considers the novelist as connoisseur, before meeting the great man himself in one of the more unlikely encounters of recent literary history. Sinclair also meets and drags in his wake some of the artists, writers and film-makers who represent, for him, an interesting alternative aesthetic of London at the end of the century. Iain Sinclair is the author of "Downriver", winner of the Encore Prize, "Lud Heat" and "White Chappell, Scarlet Tracings".
