The Scottish Poetry Library is delighted to welcome Iain Sinclair on Friday, 24 March, 7pm. This special event marks a rare Scottish appearance by Sinclair, London’s ‘radical laureate’ and populariser of ‘psychogeography’.
Iain Sinclair (born 1948, in Cardiff) is the author of a series of autobiographical novels and non-fiction chronicling London’s changing face and mixing journalism, satire, poetry and mysticism. His works include Downriver, winner of the 1992 James Tait Black Memorial Prize; and London Orbital (2002), his account of his circumnavigation of the M25. He’s also a filmmaker; his films include Swandown (2012), which charted his journey from Hastings beach to Hackney on a swan pedalo. In September, Oneworld will publish Sinclair’s The Last London, ‘my ‘final’ tilt at our stretched city. The end of a long sequence.’
[Brian Catling was originally billed as taking part in this event. Unfortunately, he has had to drop out. As a consequence, refunds are available. NB. Iain Sinclair is still taking part.]
