New Release


With its experimental prose style and intersecting narratives -- one set in the 1880s, involving the Jack the Ripper slayings and the other in the 1980s, following a group of shady rare book dealers on the hunt for clues to the Ripper's identity -- Iain Sinclair's WHITE CHAPPELL, SCARLET TRACINGS (1987) is unlike anything you've ever read. In his new introduction, comics legend Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell) writes, "Those who aspire to understand what’s happening in modern writing should start here." Published in the US for the first time and available in hardcover, paperback, and eBook.
