Iain Sinclair looks to the open road and the Beat Generation in American Smoke.
Iain Sinclair breaks for the border with American Smoke, his first full engagement with the memory- filled landscapes of the American Beats and their fellow travellers.
In a book filled with bad journeys and fated decisions, this is a a delirious expedition in the footsteps of Malcolm Lowry, Charles Olson, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Gary Snyder and more, heated by obsession (the Old West, volcanoes, Mexico) and enlivened by false memories, broken reports and strange adventures.
With American Smoke Sinclair confirms his place as the most innovative of our chroniclers of the contemporary.
