Joseph, the tactician behind the Piccadilly Circus bombing, finds himself in a nursing home in Pierrefonds, Quebec. A visit from a long-lost former fellow cell member interrupts his dalliance with the night nurse, provoking both a crisis and a period of reflection. Did he lose his mind back then as a young man? Or is he losing it now? Why did a systems analyst living on the Kandahar Road in London, with a PhD from the London School of Economics and an enthusiasm for Bobby Darin's hit "Dream Lover" (the Farsi version), bring home fertilizer? Will his former associates give him up with deathbed confessions?

Julian J. Samuel is a filmmaker, fiction writer, poet and playwright. His documentaries include The Raft of the Medusa, Into the European Mirror and City of the Dead. Formerly residing in Montreal, he now makes his home in Toronto.

Praise for Passage to Lahore: One of the bravest pieces of writing to emerge from our carefully confused Canada. Samuel travels from Lahore to Montreal (and many points in-between) with the ease of an accredited nomad. In the doing, he stakes out a place for smart, wicked characters equally fluent in international politics and intellectual gossip. This book is unafraid of anger, unafraid of ideas, unafraid of speaking the wrong thing. Passage to Lahore marks Samuel as an important renegade voice within postcolonial fiction.--Cameron Bailey, artistic director, TIFF
