A Day’s Walk Around the Ginger Line

Echoing his journey in London Orbital over a decade ago, Iain Sinclair narrates his second circular walk around the capital. Shortly after rush-hour and accompanied by a rambling companion, he begins walking along London’s Overground network — ‘the Ginger Line’. With characteristic playfulness, detours into folk history, withering assessments of the political classes and a joyful allegiance to the ordinary oddball, Iain Sinclair guides us on a tour of London’s trendiest new transport network — and shows the shifting, changing city from new and surprising angles.

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 and Dining on Stones. He is also the editor of the anthology London: City of Disappearances. His most recent works include American Smoke and 70 x 70: Unlicensed Preaching: A Life Unpacked In 70 Films.

Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire is his personal record of the area of north-east London where he has lived for forty years. His 2012 book, Ghost Milk: Calling Time on the Grand Project, starts out from the east London Olympic site on the trail of the modern ruins created by our recent Grand Projects.

Note for trainspotters and people trying to find it: The Wanstead Tap is in a railway arch underneath London Overground, the Ginger Line. The nearest station is Wanstead Park.
