Strange Labyrinth: Outlaws, Poets, Mystics, Murderers and a Coward in London's Great Forest

by Will Ashon - £9.99  Granta Books (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781783783458 | ISBN 10: 1783783451

In litter-strewn Epping Forest on the edge of London, might a writer find that magical moment of transcendence? He will certainly discover filthy graffiti and frightening dogs, as well as world-renowned artists and fading celebrities, robbers, lovers, ghosts and poets. But will he find himself? Or a version of himself he might learn something from?
 
Strange Labyrinth is a quest narrative arguing that we shouldn't get lost in order to find ourselves, but solely to accept that we are lost in the first place. It is a singular blend of landscape writing, political indignation, cultural history and wit from a startling new voice in non-fiction.
