Sinclair, Iain, Ghost Milk: Calling Time on the Grand Project (London: Hamish Hamilton, 2011).
Following on from his extraordinary and bestselling documentary fiction, Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire, Iain Sinclair sets out from the East London Olympic site - a ruin in the making - on the trail of other recent Grand Projects.
From the Athens Olympic zone, empty of life but for packs of feral dogs, to the abandoned monuments of Britain's Millenium moment, Sinclair crosses territory and time like no other literary traveller, reporting back on the trouble to come.
He presents a country-wide tour of grand projects, millennial follies and imposed-from-above schemes and presents portraits of visionary or subversive people clinging to the wreckage.
