Iain Sinclair – Excavating the Overground: A Day’s Walk Around London’s Orbital Railway

Iain Sinclair, whose books include Downriver (Winner of the James Tait Black Prize & the Encore Prize for the Year’s Best Second Novel), Radon Daughters, Landor’s Tower and, most recently, Dining on Stones (which was shortlisted for the Ondaatje prize), talks about what he has been uncovering, by way of a single day’s walk, about the property speculation, retail colonialism and population cleansing around London’s recently completed Overground railway. The talk serves as a reprise, on a more modest scale, of Iain’s M25 project.
