For young mother Venna, heroine of The Glideway, it's roads and motor cars that are only in story books. With her partner Tim and daughter Grace, she lives in a very different Wellington from the one we know. It's a seemingly ideal city with no crime, poverty or pollution, let alone traffic congestion. Glides take people wherever they want to go. Actually, Venna has never been north of Otaki. Why would she want to? Wellington meets all her needs, even if there are chinks in the perfection. City authorities control most aspects of people's lives - including their fertility. There are rumours that all is not well and good in other parts of the North Island. Maybe Venna will have to go and see for herself. But before she does so, Tim has his own hero's journey. A professional interest in dolphin communication takes him to Marlborough Sounds, where he finds the dolphins but gets a bit too close for comfort. Not to be outdone, Grace chooses a new soft toy...which isn't all it seems. These three innocents have many surprises ahead, including the harrowing new experience of hitch hiking.
Dolphins have a dominant role in The Glideway, highlighting the contrast between our 'natural' state and the man-made objects on which we now depend. Are machines becoming more like people?
