Dining on Stones is Iain Sinclair's sharp, edgy mystery of London and its environs
Andrew Norton, poet, visionary and hack, is handed a mysterious package that sees him quit London and head out along the A13 on an as yet undefined quest. Holing up in a roadside hotel, unable to make sense of his search, he is haunted by ghosts: of the dead and the not-so dead; demanding wives and ex-wives; East End gangsters; even competing versions of himself. Shifting from Hackney to Hastings and all places in-between, while dissecting a man's fractured psyche piece by piece, Dining on Stones is a puzzle and a quest - for both writer and reader.
'Exhilarating, wonderfully funny, greatly unsettling - Sinclair on top form' Daily Telegraph
'Prose of almost incantatory power, cut with Chandleresque pithiness' Sunday Times
'Spectacular: the work of a man with the power to see things as they are, and magnify that vision with a clarity that is at once hallucinatory and forensic' Independent on Sunday
