Revue de presse :

Wonderful, sharp, amusing, grippingly atmospheric. One of our most dazzling prose stylists ( Daily Telegraph)

Dazzling . . . Sinclair's explorations by foot are highly engaging and anything but pedestrian ( Sunday Telegraph)

Brilliant, superb. Anger drives the book forwards. Sinclair has gone from cult author to national treasure (Robert Macfarlane Guardian)

Ghost Milk reads like a meld of poet Allen Ginsberg, comic books writer Alan Moore and an anarchists' message board . . . There is no doubt that Sinclair is original, observant, a wonderful phrase maker ( Evening Standard)

A striking visual poetry and tart black comedy are extracted form even the most hopeless of London locations ( Spectator)

A scorching 400-page diatribe against this and other "grand projects" . . . [Sinclair is] a crazily knowledgeable local historian with a shaman's grasp of strange energies, unseen ley lines, urban esoterica ( Independent Magazine)
