Listing Detail Tabs

London is the city of disappearances. It is a shifting landscape of interzones, cracks, crannies, incomplete biographies, and missing places. Standing beyond the official, received histories – those heritage hot-spots – there exists the city of the dead and the unvoiced: the erased.

It is these fugitive scraps – this ragpicker’s bundle – that Iain Sinclair, sometimes excavator of the lost and re-forgotten, together with other writers and artists, seek to rescue from oblivion.

Inside you’ll encounter the destroyed portrait by German Expressionist Ludwig Meidner; Raymond’s Reveuebar in its afterlife; the antiquarian manuscript that reveals an astonishing tale of abduction and rape; the famous writer knocked sideways outside the hospital where he was born; the London resurrectionists; Kafka’s hairbrush in Whitechapel; a previously unrecorded book by Pepys in a Tilbury pub, and other stories both factual and those yet to grow into myth.

Iain Sinclair editor, Penguin Publisher 2006, 655pp, h/c, dj with protective cover, b&w photos.
