‘Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire’ is Iain Sinclair’s personal record of the area of north-east London where he has lived for 40 years. It is a documentary fiction, seeking to capture the spirit of place, before Hackney succumbs to mendacious green papers, eco boasts, sponsored public art and the Olympic Park gnawing at its edges.
