Dead Air

Dead Air is a book by Iain Banks, published in 2002.

It revolves around the life of Ken Nott, a radio DJ[?] on a London station called Capital Live!. The first person narrative begins on September 11, 2001, and Banks uses the protagonist's conversations -- both on the radio and off -- to discuss the political consequences of the terrorist attacks in the US on that day. The cover of the novel also conjures images of that attack; it shows an old picture of two industrial towers with an aeroplane above them.
