American Smoke Summary


American Smoke: Journeys to the End of the Light by Iain Sinclair

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 journeysand 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. Praise for Ghost Milk: 'Inventive, dazzling, arresting. A superb chronicle of an impossible dream that has descended to a nightmare' New Statesman 'Brilliant, superb. Sinclair has gone from cult author to national treasure' Robert Macfarlane, Guardian 'Wonderful, sharp, amusing, grippingly atmospheric. One of our most dazzling prose stylists' Daily Telegraph Iain Sinclair is the author of Downriver (winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Encore Award); Landor's Tower; White Chappell, Scarlet Tracings; Lights Out for the Territory; Lud Heat; Rodinsky's Room (with Rachel Lichtenstein); Radon Daughters; London Orbital, Dining on Stones, Hackney, that Rose-Red Empire and Ghost Milk.
