Sinclair's second novel is most of these things: brilliant, vicious, difficult, lyrical, brutal, epic, unreadable, compulsively readable, dark, funny, frustrating, rewarding.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141014857, Paperback)

'Crazy, dangerous, prophetic' - Angela Carter. In "Downriver", Iain Sinclair traces the ruins of Margaret Thatcher's reign through the lens of a fictional film crew that has been hired to make a documentary about what's left of London's river life. The Thames may still flow through the heart of the capital, but life along its shores has changed dramatically. "Downriver" is a savage, satirical quest to understand how people's lives, government's policies and a legendary water land conspire together in a boggling display of self-destruction.
