Iain Sinclair (Writers & Their Work) (Writers and Their Work) - Softcover
Iain Sinclair has a growing reputation as a novelist and writer of documentary non-fiction. This study covers his major works, but also seeks to trace the connections between the writings and his earlier books of poetry. Indeed, it traces the intertextual curve of Sinclair s entire oeuvre, and demonstrates that its unity lies in the very desire to make connections between disparate cultural experience, for example between the context of avant garde poetry that Sinclair emerged from, and the world of pulp fiction that he has negotiated as a book dealer and an editor.

This introduction to the work of one of today's most intriguing writers is another triumph in this admirable series....not only does this book engage in detail with Sinclair's novels but it also provides a very good bibliography and in the end what Robert Sheppard brings to life in this short survey is a sense of the fascinating quality of both seriousness and humour which thread their way through the work. --Use of English, Autumn 2008
