Dirty and dangerous Aug. 31 2001
By flying-monkey - Published on
Format: Paperback
Iain Sinclair knows the mythical paths of London like no-one else. In poetic often painfully intense prose, he conjures up the half-dead spirits that stalk the streets of this seedy town. The landscape is dominated by dodgy second-hand book dealers skulking in the shadows obsessed by the Ripper murders, and by the vicious presence of Jack himself, the embodiement of powerful evil forces embedded in the fabric of the city. If you only ever read one novel about Jack the Ripper, or never wanted to read one, White Chappell, Scarlet Tracings is a must. A warning though: it is not for the faint-hearted.

WUI - writing under the .... March 26 2009
By Dick Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am going to keep reading Sinclair (and Haruki Murakami) until I understand one book they have written. I didn't get there with this one.

Sinclair can write some amazing sentences. He can also write some that make sense. He just never combines the two skills.

Since there is virtually no description of this book above, take the time to use the "Look Inside" feature and read the back cover. You won't learn a lot, but it will make you think you have.

To get a feel for Sinclair, think Pynchon - but lacking in clarity.
