Iain at Pages of Hackney

Launching his follow up to Hackney That Red Rose Empire, local author Iain Sinclair will be instore to read from his latest book Ghost Milk.

Beginning in his east London home many years before it will be invaded by the Olympian machinery of global capitalism, Sinclair strikes out near and far in search of the forgotten and erased. He travels from the mouth of the Thames to Oxford, crosses Morecambe Bay in the footsteps of drowned Chinese cockle pickers, and visits an Athenian, post-Olympics landscape of vast and deserted stadia.

Burrowing under the perimeter fence of the grandest of Grand Projects – the giant myth that is 2012’s London Olympics – Ghost Milk is a road map to a possible future as well as Iain Sinclair’s most powerful statement yet on the throwaway impermanence of the present.
