The Canal” by Lee Rourke is a book about Boredom, a guy who one day decides to stand by the canal and do nothing; I picked this book up on a whim, and despite it being in no way about the subject I thought it would be, its a good book that was hard to put down again.

At some point I may try and visit the spot on the canal half way between Hackney and Islington, with an Rusting Iron Bridge to the left, near a sign with ‘Sheperdess Walk’
