Downriver by Iain Sinclair

In Downriver, Sinclair traces the ruins of Thatcher’s reign, through the lens of a fictional film crew that has been hired to make a documentary about what’s left of the river life that was. The novel is a savage, satirical quest to understand how people’s lives, a government’s policies, and a legendary waterland conspire together in a boggling display of self-destruction.
Iain Sinclair was born in Cardiff.
