    Iain Sinclair. Iain Sinclair is the award-winning writer of numerous critically acclaimed books on London, including Lights Out for the Territory, London Orbital and London Overground. He won the Encore Award and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his novel Downriver. He lives in Hackney, East London. More Author Information. “When I opened Iain Sinclair's American Smoke I felt something very is a style both measured and sumptuously wild--a beautiful, obsessive and individual style--and it's the right weapon for attacking a monumental task: visiting American towns and landscapes associated with the Beats and the writers and poets in their orbit.”.

    Winner of the Encore Award in Britain, Welsh-born poet and antiquarian-bookseller Sinclair's second novel (but first US publication): a tumultuous, frenzied, and mercilessly critical story of London past and present. Constructed as a series of interlocking stories, the primary focus is on the Docklands, a rundown wharf and warehouse district that was targeted for upscale redevelopment in Author: Iain Sinclair. In Downriver, Iain Sinclair s first book to be published in the United States, the author traces the ruins of Thatcher s reign, through the lens of a fictional film crew that has been hired to make a documentary about what s left of the river life that was.

    Sinclair is a stylist, his writing accomplished but dense and generally uncompromising. He takes the reader to interesting places, but not every reader will enjoy the voyage. Downriver is a mightily impressive book, but not necessarily approachable. Sinclair's language can sweep one away, but at over pages it is a long and sometimes.   Living with Buildings is a remarkable book; surprisingly gripping and often very moving. It extends and deepens Iain Sinclair's extraordinary 'brain-mapping project' - his investigation, carried out over many books and years, into how place embeds itself into mind, and mind into place/5(34).
