Iain Sinclair is the author of many acclaimed books, including Downriver (winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize). He is also the editor of the anthology of London: City of Disappearances.Review:
"Luxuriant prose, has a dark ascorbic bite, lingering on the tongue just as surely as it does in the mind." Jon Gower, Caught by the River. "Black Apples of Gower fuses anecdote, memoir, biography, history, archaeology and geography in an essay on mortality and memory that sweeps like Rhossili Bay. But is is also a visit to this island of otherness, whose scents, sounds, flora and fauna accompany every step of the way, and there is not a page in which Mr Sinclair's prose is any less musical, rich or sharp than his ghost-guides finest poetry." Mark Griffiths, Country Life.

Book Description Little Toller, 2015. Book Condition: New. Though famously a resident of Hackney and known for his writings on the 'psychogeography' of London, Iain Sinclair was born in Cardiff. This monograph sees him rediscover the blue-grey roads and cliff-top paths of his childhood in South Wales, on a journey through place, memory and his responses to the poetry of Dylan Thomas and Vernon Watkins, plus the artwork of Ceri Richards, who created the strange series of paintings that gives the book its name.
