Reviews

  • Publisher's description. From London's master psychogeographer and the author of Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire, comes a new adventure into the city's ancient and modern secrets. This is a living history of the edgelands and forgotten spaces surrounding London Overground: a portrait of the shifting, changing metropolis as seen from the 'Ginger Line'.

    Penguin
  • Sometimes dark, sometimes wry... For the aficionado, London Overground will deliver all the delights of Sinclair's edgy and hard-edged prose; for those who do not know his work it is an accessible starting point for one of the most rewarding oeuvres in 21st century literature

    Scotsman
  • He is incapable of writing a dull paragraph

    Scotland on Sunday
  • Sinclair breathes wondrous life into monstrous, man-made landscapes

    Times Literary Supplement
  • If you are drawn to English that doesn't just sing, but sings the blues and does scat and rocks the joint, try Sinclair. His sentences deliver a rush like no one else's

    Washington Post
  • Sinclair [is a] peerless London literary wanderer and street-level cultural archaeologist... delirious, often hilarious urban palimpsest where pin-sharp observation, cultural hauntings and offbeat memoir fuse in sentences that catch your breath like a lurid toxic sunset over Hackney Marshs
