  1. The Last London - London Review of Books

    I usually find Iain Sinclair a bit much, too grouchy, but the start of this is very good on modern London, around Shoreditch, Spitalfields and Liverpool Street.

  2. Iain Sinclair · Diary: My Olympics · LRB 30 August 2012

    He’s usually an entertaining read, despite his relentless talking-down of even incidental things (I’m not sure Zara Phillips’ Olympic horse can be described as a “sore-hoofed nag”). But, more and more, I wonder, “What does Iain Sinclair *want*? I know what he’s against, but what is he *for*?”

  3. LRB · Iain Sinclair · The Raging Peloton

    He has a nice turn of phrase but Iain Sinclair is a gloomy, misanthropic reactionary who thinks the only people who can ride bikes authentically are the 1950s working class and eccentric poets. One wonders why he still lives in London.

  4. Michael Moorcock, Alan Moore, Iain Sinclair « Mostly on McSweeney’s!

    A very nicely written set of notes about that discussion at the British Library a week ago. (via Blech)

  5. LRB · Iain Sinclair: The Olympics Scam

    Very good long article on the 2012 London Olympics and its effect on East London. I was getting won over by the Olympics until this reminded me how I really feel.
