Summary: “Fallen Empire is a journey through the ever-changing cityscape of London’s East End, an ephemeral limbo of destruction and reconstruction, debris nets, random encounters, nameless ruins: an interzone.
The book is a behind the scenes look at the glamorous capital and its heart of darkness, a liminal space with no obvious landmarks shared by every modern metropolis.”
