The country's finest writer considers the structures that shape us, that permeate our psychologies and ultimately become us ... Sinclair's acid-sharp analysis is vital, insightful and necessary. This is town planning of the soul, a new urban map without which we are lost. Read it immediately. -- Alan Moore
One of Iain Sinclair's best books ... an illustrated elegy for London's East End and her brutal architectural experiments. His walks ... are described with pithy lyricism.

Iain Sinclair feeds us a rich diet of shrewd insights ... He leaves you gasping with the punch and pungency of his images -- Rowan Moore * Observer *
Sinclair's recent work represents some of the most important in contemporary English letters -- Will Self * New Statesman *

The truest and most knowledgeable living writer on London. * Evening Standard *
