July First Sunday and King Street Festival

 First Sunday This Sunday and we're starting in a rather peculiar way... I'll be on the histories soapbox at the Kings St Festival at 2pm Sunday 2nd June (I think the stage is by Tast) where I'll be talking about Manchester psychogeographies, fights for access and public space plus some other interesting stuff about our city streets. Will probably also challenge the claim this is Manchester's most iconic and historic street.... Loiterers are encouraged to come along, listen and heckle as you wish. Ou...

50. Merlin Coverley, Psychogeography

While thinking and writing about Iain Sinclair’s London Orbital this week, I realized that I needed a firmer sense of exactly what psychogeography is. Good thing Merlin Coverley’s little book on the subject was on my shelf. It’s a brief but informative look at a variety of writers–Coverley is primarily concerned with literary manifestations of psychogeography, […]

49. Nan Shepherd, The Living Mountain

I’ve read Nan Shepherd’s The Living Mountain before, but for pleasure. It’s a beautiful book, and a powerful evocation of a specific place: the Cairngorms, a mountain range in northern Scotland. Because I wanted to write about it in the paper I’m currently working on, I had to read it again–this time, taking careful notes. Believe […]
