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.
Praise for The Thought Gang:
‘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 ‘Hilarious, fast-moving stuff’ Independent
