런던 궤도 London Orbital

싱클레어는  넓은 런던을 아우르기 위하여 자신의 영적인 고향인 해크니를 떠나 외곽으로 향한다.런던 궤도 M25 순환도로를 따라걷는 대서사시다. 이는 싱클레어를 JG  발라드가 이전에 다뤘던 영역으로 데려다 준다. 여기서 다시한  싱클레어는 자신만의 성공적인 심리지리학 브랜드를 제시한다. 도시 방랑자와 지역 역사가, 아방가르드 운동가, 정치 논객이 만나고 합쳐진다.

Encircling London like a noose, the M25 is a road to nowhere, but when Iain Sinclair sets out to walk this asphalt loop - keeping within the 'acoustic footprints' - he is determined to find out where the journey will lead him. Stumbling upon converted asylums, industrial and retail parks, ring-fenced government institutions and lost villages, Sinclair discovers a Britain of the fringes, a landscape consumed by developers.
