Kesey's first novel since "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Sometimes a Great Notion" in the early 1960s. Into the midst of a rich cast of characters in a run-down Alaskan fishing community, sails a ship of last hopes, loaded to the gunwales with a big-bucks Hollywood film company.

Book Description Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 208 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. After writing two books in the early 1960s, both now established as American classics, Ken Kesey abandoned the novel in its established form. Over the past twenty-five years he has written many shorter pieces, but only now, with Sailor Song, brings his considerable powers once again to bear on a full-scale undertaking, giving us a unique and powerful novel about America. Set in the near future, the story takes us to the Alaskan village of Kuinak, a rundown fishing community of Deaps (Descendants of Early Aboriginal Peoples) and Lower Forty-eight refugees perched on the Western Edge of history. It s a scene rich with characters, like Alice the Angry Aleut, Ike Sallas (known as the Bakatcha Bandit during the environmental wars of the nineties), the town s indispensable scoot runner Billy the Squid, and the Loyal Order of Underdogs, who meet monthly for the Full Moon Howl. Into their peculiar midst sails a mighty ship of last hopes, loaded to the gunwales with a big-bucks Hollywood film company. This famous studio/yacht has come north to film a classic childrenas book, The Sea Lion. Unscripted transformations abound as the project stirs a new mix into the community, including a tribe brought down from the remote north. Sailor Song is an epic novel that revolves around the question: Does love make any sense at the end of the world? It s about things that endure and come around again - back at you, and back to you.
