Description

'A book about London; in other words, a book about everything' - Peter Ackroyd, "The Times". Walking the streets of London, Iain Sinclair traces nine routes across the territory of the capital. Connecting people and places, redrawing boundaries both ancient and modern, reading obscure signs and finding hidden patterns, Sinclair creates a fluid snapshot of the city. In "Lights Out for the Territory", he gives us a daring, provocative, enlightening, disturbing and utterly unique picture of modern urban life. And in the process, he reveals the dark underbelly of a London many of us did not know existed.
