Iain Sinclair reads from ‘I TRANSGRESS’ // Lima 27/06/19

 
I contributed 3 short texts (prose poems) from my very limited edition (10 copies only) of Fifty Catacomb Saints to an anthology (I Transgress) edited by Chris Kelso, and published by Salo Press, Norwich. Chris asked contributors to post phone-recorded readings of their texts for promotional purposes (on YouTube). 
I don’t (can’t) do phone recordings and, in any case, was on the point of departure for Peru. In Lima, visiting the cathedral previously described by my great-grandfather, I asked Grant Gee to film a softly spoken reading. We had just finished inspecting the bones and monument and mummy (status questionable) of Francisco Pizarro. So it felt like the right place (by smell and sound) for this text. Grant was gathering footage for his proposed feature film, The Gold Machine. He covered our journey all the way. He’d like, if sufficient funds can be raised, to return to Peru next spring, to spend more time on the key locations. (Iain Sinclair)

Belated 10th anniversary

I just realised that this website has been around for over 10 years, in fact it started in June 2008.

Happy 10th anniversary!

A huge thank you to Iain for letting me create this website and for feeding it with details about his work and his life.

 

Living with Buildings and Walking with Ghosts, a review

One of the advantages of working 12 hours a day is that one can miss almost anything else other than work.

For example the fact that Iain just published not one, but two new books!

I missed the opportunity to even announce these books post-publication.

Here is a review… “The Urban Wanderer” on a website subtitled “The Newspaper of Resistance”.
