Iain Sinclair


A study of the fiction, documentary and poetry of Iain Sinclair, the connections between these writings, and the connection he makes between cultural phenomena and place.

Description: Iain Sinclair has a growing reputation as a novelist and writer of documentary non¬-fiction. This study covers his major works, but also seeks to trace the connections between the writings and his earlier books of poetry. Indeed, it traces the intertextual curve of Sinclair?s entire oeuvre, and demonstrates that its unity lies in the very desire to make connections between disparate cultural experience, for example between the context of avant garde poetry that Sinclair emerged from, and the world of pulp fiction that he has negotiated as a book dealer and an editor.


Another triumph in this admirable series....not only does this book engage in detail with Sinclair's novels but it also provides a very good bibliography
