Tibor Fischer: The Thought Gang Tibor Fischer: The Thought Gang

Entertaining and often dazzling, this is Tibor Fischer's second novel. Under the Frog won the Betty Trask Award and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.

A black comedy in the grand tradition of word-drunk intellectuals-en-dementia, The Thought Gang follows the larcenous adventures of blackout alcoholic philosopher Eddie Coffin who, in the wake of scandal, flees his professorship in England to begin the next logical step in his career: robbery.

Coffin and his new partner in crime and metaphysics, Hubert the one-armed robber, roadtrip across the Continent in a spree of crime and epistemology, arguing a cracked history of Western philosophy and plumbing the meaning of life.

Tibor Fischer: The Thought Gang

Reading The Thought Gang by Tibor Fischer is definitely the most extraordinary experience for those bored with Dr Gregory House: this lazy, self-conceited, fallen philosopher and aspiring bankrobber, Eddie Coffin, is one of the most inspiring characters in contemporary literature.
He, for example, made me collect all the Z-words from the book, in chronological order. There are 310 of them.
