Iain Sinclair

Iain Sinclair

Iain Sinclair talks to Andy Miller about his travels through Peru in the footsteps of our ancestors, guided by – and in reaction to – an ill-fated colonial expedition led by his great-grandfather, Arthur Sinclair. He shares stories about bounty hunters, missionaries, today's ecotourists, the family history of a displaced Scottish highlander and the brutal reality of a major land grab – revealing how the historic thirst for gold and the establishment of sprawling coffee plantations have left terrible wounds on virgin territory.

Iain Sinclair is an award-winning author and filmmaker, among his best known publications The Last London, Lights Out for the Territory, London Orbital and Downriver.

Andy Miller is a reader, author and editor of books. He is one of the presenters of Backlisted Podcast and he lives in Whitstable.
