Journey through lost high street landmarks of East and South London in a series of detailed artworks blending map, archive and anecdote with deadpan humour.

What do you call a memoir that isn't? In THIS IS NOT A MEMOIR, Janette Parris incisively narrates a journey through lost high street landmarks of East and South London in a series of detailed artworks blending map, archive and anecdote with deadpan humour. Part graphic novel, part recollection, and accompanied by an in-conversation between Janette Parris and Gilane Tawadros, this is an intimate exploration of what it means to have ownership of public space, from Wimpy to Woolworth's via Canning Town. And somewhere in the gaps, in absent moments caught gazing at the sky or a kerbside, an impression of a life emerges-or is that just what she wants you to think?
