9780099437734: Voyage To The End Of The Room

Oceane, successful computer graphics designer and former dancer, likes to travel, but doesn't like to go out; in fact she never leaves home. Her solution is to bring the world to her South London flat using satellite, the internet and passing foreigners. Her lifestyle suits her until she starts getting letters from an ex - an ex who died ten years ago.

Utilising the services of Audley, failed mercenary and debt collector, Oceane has to start searching the world. Weaving from the sex clubs of Barcelona to the battlefields of Yugoslavia, this is a meditation on a random world, why ketchup is important and why the Audit Commission rated Lambeth Council as one of the worst in the country.

"A delicate serio-comic treasure" (Salman Rushdie)

"Barking mad, but brilliant" ( FHM)

"Fischer writes sparking, taut, highly energetic prose. Fischer's wit and ironic verve keep you turning the page" ( Scotsman)

"A dazzling collage of dark comedy laced with metaphysics from an author whose mind fires like popcorn in the microwave-a book that achieves the rare feat of being both thought-provoking and fun" ( Arena)

From the Publisher:

Tibor Fischer at his most inventive, sexy and explosive best - if Michel Houellebecq had a sense of humour this is what he might write-
