Críticas:

A book about London; in other words, a book about everything (Peter Ackroyd The Times)

Quite simply one of the finest books about London ever written (Spectator)

Exhilarating, funny, visionary (TLS)

Reseña del editor:

Iain Sinclair's Lights Out For The Territory - part of the limited edition PENGUIN STREET ART series: timeless writing, enduring design.

'The notion was to cut a crude V into the sprawl of the city, to vandalise dormant energies by an act of ambulant signmaking'

Walking the streets of London, Iain Sinclair traces nine routes across the territory of the capital. Connecting people and places, redrawing boundaries both ancient and modern, reading obscure signs and finding hidden patterns, Sinclair creates a fluid snapshot of the city. In Lights Out for the Territory he gives us a daring, provocative, enlightening, disturbing and utterly unique picture of modern urban life. And in the process he reveals the dark underbelly of a London many of us did not know existed.

'Quite simply one of the finest books about London ever written' Spectator

Iain Sinclair is the author of Downriver (winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Encore Award); Landor's Tower; White Chappell, Scarlet Tracings; Lights Out for the Territory; Lud Heat; Rodinsky's Room (with Rachel Lichtenstein); Radon Daughters; London Orbital, Dining on Stones, Ghost Milk and Hackney, that Rose-Red Empire.
