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.
