At the Manchester Literature Festival


American Smoke

Take a literary journey across America with influential writer and psychogeographer, Iain Sinclair. The acclaimed author of Ghost Milk, Hackney, that Rose-Red Empire, London Orbital and Lights Out for the Territory, Iain turns his focus on the compelling, memory-filled landscapes of the American Beats and their fellow travellers in his forthcoming book American Smoke. Chronicling his epic walk in the footsteps of Kerouac, Burroughs, Snyder, Olson and Lowry, it is enlivened by false memories, broken reports, obsessions with the Old West and strange adventures.
