'Chastening and darkly funny ...For all its gloomy prognostications on the way society is heading, Surveillance will only leave you wanting more' Anthony Quinn, Daily Telegraph 'Surveillance is a work that confirms Raban as one of the most original commentators on the times in which we live' William Skidelsky, New Statesman 'A dense human comedy about truth and lies ...He writes easily, his prose is relaxed, conversational, his observations shrewd ...Surveillance is a novel for and about a US in which everyone wants to be American and in which security is the new terror. Raban's offbeat narrative is a cautionary one dealing with the upheaval of the crisis known as Now' Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
