"Fallen Empire departs from two years of wanderings through the ever-changing cityscape of London’s East End on the eve of the Olympics, an ephemeral limbo of destruction and reconstruction, debris nets, random encounters, nameless ruins, a city in the making while it holds its breath before a high dive. This is the 1st edition of the book, born from the ashes of its raw 0th edition, re-imagined by the means of a different sequencing and editing for a completely new meaning."
