'The notion was to cut a crude V into the sprawl of the city, to vandalize dormant energies by an act of ambulant signmaking.'

Walking the streets of London, Iain Sinclair traces nine routes across the territory of the capital. Connecting people and places, redrawing boundaries both ancient and modern, reading obscure signs and finding hidden patterns, Sinclair creates a fluid snapshot of the city. In Lights Out for the Territory he gives us a daring, provocative, enlightening, disturbing and utterly unique picture of modern urban life. And in the process he reveals the dark underbelly of a London many of us did not know existed.

'Quite simply one of the finest books about London ever written.' Spectator

'whether the book addresses graffiti explicitly, evoke a city from the past, or are considered cult classics, the novels all share the quality – like street art – of speaking to their time.' Guardian Gallery
