The Thought Gang

The Thought Gang Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The setting is France: our hero, a washed-up middle-aged British philosopher named Eddie Coffin. Broke and unsure as to his next meal, he meets Hubert, an incompetent, freshly-released, one-armed armed robber, and the "thought gang" is born. Applying philosophy to larceny, these unlikely bandits question the meaning of life, the value of money, and the role of banks as they wind their way from Montpellier to Toulon in search of the greatest heist in history. Unexpected and volatile, The Thought Gang is the hilarious and thought-provoking story of their travails.

Synopsis:

"A cult novel for the 1990s" (London Times) from the Booker Prize finalist.
