Hisako Onoda, world famous cellist, refuses to fly. And so she travels to Europe as a passenger on a tanker bound through the Panama Canal. But Panama is a country whose politics are as volatile as the local freedom fighters. When Hisako's ship is captured, it is not long before the atmosphere is as flammable as an oxy-acetylene torch, and the tension as sharp as the spike on her cello...
CANAL DREAMS is a novel of deceptive simplicity and dark, original power: stark psychological insights mesh with vividly realised scenarios in an ominous projection of global realpolitik. The result is yet another major landmark in the quite remarkable career of an outstanding modern novelist.
Synopsis: After three years, Iain Banks returns to literary fiction with the story of a cellist travelling from Japan to Europe by steamer and her encounters. Iain Banks has also written "The Wasp Factory", "Walking on Glass", "The Bridge", "Espedair Street" and "Consider Phlebas".
