Black Apples of Gower by Iain Sinclair
“luxuriant prose, has a dark, ascorbic bite, lingering on the tongue just as surely as it does in the mind.” Jon Gower, Caught by the River
“...This is a wonderful book that is almost impossible to sum up; neither a guide book, nor a history, nor an autobiography or a work of art criticism – it is all of those and more.” Jo Mazlis, Wales Arts Review
The paperback edition of Iain Sinclair’s bestselling monograph, in which the celebrated author and pyscho-geographer rediscovers the landscape of his youth – the Gower peninsula in South Wales.
