Reviews

"Nothing will get you thinking as much as this brilliant book." --George Walden, The Sunday Telegraph

"There is unlikely to be a more provocative or more compelling book published this year than Straw Dogs . . . Gray is one of the most consistently interesting and unpredictable thinkers in Britain." --Jason Cowley, The Observer (London)

"One of the most important books published this year, and will probably prove to be one of the most important this century. An attempt to suggest new ways of thinking and feeling . . . nobody can hope to understand the times in which we live unless they have read Straw Dogs." --Sue Corrigan, Mail on Sunday

"At once daunting and enthralling, Gray's remarkable new book shows us what it would be like to live without the distraction of consolations." --Adam Phillips

"This powerful and brilliant book is an essential guide to the new Millennium. Straw Dogs challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be human, and convincingly shows that most of them are delusions." --J.G. Ballard
