Synopsis

What happens when the games have gone? Iain Sinclair reports on the trouble to come

Beginning in his east London home many years before it will be invaded by the Olympian machinery of global capitalism, Sinclair strikes out near and far in search of the forgotten and erased.

Burrowing under the perimeter fence of the grandest of Grand Projects - the giant myth that is 2012's London Olympics - Ghost Milk explores a landscape under sentence of death and soon to be scorched by riots. This is a road map to a possible future as well as Iain Sinclair's most powerful statement yet on the throwaway impermanence of the present.

A seering & necessary cultural critique of the material manifestations of the bloated & unaccountable cant that is neo-liberalism.
