  • Description or summary of the book: In American Smoke, Iain Sinclair hits the road to America in the tracks of the Beats.On the trail of the American Beats, Iain Sinclair makes a delirious and perhaps ill-fated expedition in the footsteps of Malcolm Lowry, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Charles Olson and Gary Snyder. It is a journey in search of literary ghosts behind mirages of volcanoes and the Old West. In which rumours vie with false memories and unreliable reports to steer our guide from one strange adventure into another. It is an odyssey in which the beginning offers no clues as to where it may end. 'A transatlantic odyssey . . . grippingly haunted' Observer'A challenging, maddening, fascinating journey . . . enjoy Sinclair's poetic language and subtly warped sense of humour.
