really liked it

I was drawn to this book because it’s about an area of London I know well. I spent four years running through Hackney Marshes and the Lea Valley and the lyrical prose instantly transported me back to that city hinterland. The fictional experiments were less successful than the historiographical explorations.

The musical appendices have shape to my sense that reading the book was akin to taking a walk with Stuart Marconi’s Freak Zone playing in your ears.
