Tim Robinson and Iain Sinclair
Two landscapes. One urban. One rural. Each captured by one of non-fiction‘s most compelling prose stylists.
"One of the most original, revelatory and exhilarating works of literature ever produced in Ireland."
Irish Times on Stones of Aran
Tim Robinson made his name with the universally acclaimed two-volume Stones of Aran. The Yorkshire-born artist, environmentalist and writer moved from Aran to Connemara more than 20 years ago. His extraordinary engagement with its unique landscape, folklore and often terrible history now bears fruit in the first volume of an epic trilogy, Connemara: Listening to the Wind.
"My book of the year. Sentence by sentence there is no more interesting writer at work in English."
John Lanchester, Daily Telegraph on London Orbital
No other writer has explored the psychogeography of England's capital city like Iain Sinclair. After immersing himself in Beat culture and literary modernism at Trinity College, Dublin, he found his essential terrain in the occult mythology and alternative histories of London. From the awardwinning novel Downriver (1991) to his magnum Opus London Orbital (2002) and last year's London: a City of Disappearances, he has remapped and redefined its fugitive topography.
