Iain Sinclair is a great walker and writer of cities and places. His latest book, Ghost Milk, looks at our possible futures as well as making his most powerful statement yet on the throwaway impermanence of the present. It is a story of incident and accident, of the curious meeting the bizarre. Police raids and mass expulsions jostle with accounts of failed grand projects: the Millennium Dome, Thames Gateway, and numerous other half-completed, ill-advised or abandoned structures. Iain Sinclair will be in discussion with Anita Sethi.
