Abstract

Everything is provisional here. Nothing is grounded..." runs a commentary from Iain Sinclair on twenty-first century Hackney. This chapter discusses the London novels of Alexander Baron in the context of current and historic London housing crises and how working class communities seek to endure, as Baron puts it, "making the best of a bad job".
