About the book

Spiralling from the outer limits of the Overground to the pinnacle of the Shard, Iain Sinclair encounters a metropolis stretched beyond recognition. The vestiges of secret tunnels, the ghosts of saints and lost poets lie buried by developments, the cycling revolution and Brexit. An electrifying final odyssey, The Last London is an unforgettable vision of the Big Smoke before it disappears into the air of memory. When late 20th- and early 21st-century London pass into distant history, it's Iain Sinclair who will make sense of a time when “everything is pop-up, nothing is true”.

Iain Sinclair is the leading figure in London's psychogeography. The author of "Lights Out For the Territory" (1996), for which he ran the letter V on the urban map of London and recorded observations and encounters along this route, is the missing link between Guy Debord and Sherlock Holmes.
