London in Quotations: Iain Sinclair

For the bookish, London is a book. For criminals, a map of opportunities. For unpapered immigrants, it is a nest of skinned eyes; sanctioned gunmen ready to blow your head off as you run for a train. When the city of distorting mirrors revealed itself, through its districts and discriminations, I discovered more about London’s past as a reworking of my own submerged history.

  1. I can’t say I have seen many (if any) ‘sanctioned gunmen’ blowing off heads near train stations. Iain must have been a lot more observant than me.
    Cheers, Pete.
