Tangerine Press are extremely proud to be
publishing the latest book by Iain Sinclair.

My Favourite London Devils is a delirious gathering of some of the writers, living and dead, who haunt Iain Sinclair and who inform his own London books. And yet it is so much more than that. Devils is a gazetteer of influences and enthusiasms. A charge sheet. And a fragmented autobiography laid out through a series of portraits as picaresque as John Aubrey’s Brief Lives.

In these pages, Mr Sinclair encounters established London authorities: Peter Ackroyd, Michael Moorcock, J.G. Ballard, Angela Carter. We pay our respects to the eternally rediscovered: Patrick Hamilton and Alexander Baron. And the reforgotten: Roland Camberton and Robert Westerby. Other writers considered: John Healy (The Grass Arena), Jack Kerouac and Joseph Conrad. Fifteen in total.

My Favourite London Devils also contains specially commissioned artwork by Dave McKean. Sixteen Illustrations -- including one of Mr Sinclair himself -- adorn these pages. Mr McKean also provides an extraordinary 'Catcombs' image, which is bound into the ltd editions, and features on the paperback front cover.
