Reviews

Will open readers' eyes to what is around and below them ... Its delight in exploration is matched by a thoughtful meditation on grief. * Economist *
Periodic surprises even for the most dedicated student of this subject ... movingly written. -- Caroline Crampton * Spectator *
Incredible ... More than a simply a cracking read, it's a book that will inspire you to go out and make your own discoveries. You'll never look at the city in the same way again. * Londonist *
[Chivers] combines the modern phenomenon of psycho-geographer with the ancient trade of poet ...
Action-packed, erudite... an audiobook to savour slowly. -- Christina Hardyment * The Times *
London, investigated through the medium of psycho-geology, is revealed as a nexus of energies, interconnections, memories and resurrections. Tom Chivers, with the forensic eye of an investigator, the soul of a poet, is an engaging presence; a guide we would do well to follow. -- Iain Sinclair, author of London Orbital
