Auteur: Sinclair, Iain
Titel: London Orbital
In this volume Iain Sinclair sets out to map the vast stretch of urban settlement outside London bounded by the M25. His long journeys - from the Lea Valley to Uxbridge, from Staines to South Mimms - are flanked by the black clouds of smoke from burning carcasses as the foot and mouth panic takes hold. Here he uncovers a history of forgotten villages, suburban utopias and hellish asylums, now transformed into upmarket housing, all the while walking a disappearing landscape, as the countryside is engulfed by commerce. There's plenty psychogeographical detours into a.o.: diggers at georges hill, hatred for new labour, j.g. Ballard, Bill Drummond.
