Ghost Milk: Calling Time on the Grand Project at the Oxford Literary Festival 2013

Iain Sinclair is firmly established as one of the most influential and provocative of contemporary British writers. Documentarist, film maker, poet, flâneur, memoirist, novelist and campaigner, in this Oxford Brookes University session Sinclair will talk about his most recently published book, Ghost Milk, a corrective to the grand project and development of the London 2012 Olympics. He will also discuss Swandown, a 2012 film in which he and director Andrew Kötting sail a swan pedalo 160 miles along the coast from Hastings to Hackney.

Sinclair’s many works include Flesh Eggs and Scalp Metal: Selected Poems 1970-1987; several novels; and non-fiction works including Edge of the Orison: In the Traces of John Clare’s ‘Journey Out Of Essex’.

This session is presented by the Department of English and Modern Languages, and the School of Architecture, at Oxford Brookes University.
