I couldn’t have picked a better reviewer. The Los Angeles Review of Books’ choice of Geoff Nicholson on the works of Iain Sinclair is spot on for today’s lead piece. (The only other one I might have tried is that other proper prophet of psychogeography, Will Self.)
What Nicholson knows is that you don’t tackle the maker of Lud Heat and London Orbital with a typical review approach. Sinclair’s too expansive, too encyclopedic for that. It won’t do him justice. Instead, Nicholson’s LARB piece gives us an A to Z of Sinclair, and it works just right. Do yourself a favor and check it out, my beloved friends.
(Reviewing’s not a lost art, btw: the headline’s just a reference to a terrific book by Nicholson.)
