Old factories, run-down houses, but also unexpected strips of wilderness: a landscape on the border between city and country, populated by people who are out of order, out of sync. Characteristics of real life on the edge of any metropolis. In nine stages of a walk in the area around the River Lea outside London, Esther Kinsky traces the overlapping fragments of the personal and urban history of this river landscape, using the wilderness of the marsh as a free space for memory and reflection.
