Money’s Little Helpers

"The central evil, in Sinclair's view, is the vast Westfield shopping mall planned for the site.  This is the actual legacy, a double for its West London equivalent.  Sinclair explores the original with appreciative loathing: this, we see, is where history really ends, in a timeless retain interior which is only in the most strictly formal sense a place.  Money has established its own supreme teleology: we are simply a means of transferring it from one account to the other."  Sean O' Brien, Times Literary Supplement
