Product Description:

France. A skint, clapped-out British philosopher meets an incompetent, freshly released, one-armed, armed robber. The Thought Gang is born as the duo blag their way from Montpellier to Toulon for the ultimate bank robbery. Ferociously funny, Fischer combines an extravagant sense of humour with a flair for the grotesque in this heady follow-up to the Booker shortlisted Under the Frog.

Review:

"Hilarious, fast-moving stuff" ( Independent)

"Not since Woody Allen has philosophy had such a hilarious application" ( Guardian)

"A fast-paced, off-beat thriller... It's a zany novel with depth and a fresh, almost controversial prose style that gives you the creeping impression that you have just hitched a lift with one hell of an imagination" ( List)

"Acerbic, dashingly inventive, very funny indeed" (Christopher Hitchens Mail on Sunday)

"Fischer has a unique ability to hinge the most unlikely concepts together... charcoaling ideas to gem-hardened, irresistibly funny insights" ( Time Out)
