A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain: "Fear and loathing in Lost Albion"


Owen Hatherley's A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain continues to spark debate and garner admiration, this time from Jay Merrick, reviewing for the Independent.

Owen Hatherley is not entirely civil; he is restless and willingly fractured, intellectually and emotionally, he is a fulminating critic-cum-flâneur. In A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain, his loves and despairs generate stimulating ideas, chips from shoulders, and obsessively detailed descriptions of movements through the towns and cities he visited with his photographer, Joel Anderson. This is fear and loathing in Lost Albion riffed by a quainter version of Hunter S Thompson."
