The Thought Gang

The Thought Gang



The Pequod Review:

A washed-up British philosopher partners with a criminal to rob banks, and applies the lessons of classic philosophers (Marx, Nietzsche, Plato, the Stoics, etc.) to each of his robberies. The combination isn't always successful, but Tibor Fischer's prose is playful and mischievous:

The only advice I can offer, should you wake up vertiginously in a strange flat, with a thoroughly installed hangover, without any of your clothing, without any recollection of how you got there, with the police sledgehammering down the door to the accompaniment of excited dogs, while you are surrounded by bales of lavishly-produced magazines featuring children in adult acts, the only advice I can offer is to try to be good-humored and polite.
