Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this wacky philosophical caper, washed-up, middle-aged British philosopher Eddie Coffin flees scandal and ruin at home to find himself destitute in France. There he hooks up with Hubert, a one-armed armed robber recently released from prison, and the thought gang is born. Applying philosophy to larceny, this unlikely duo winds its way from Montpellier to Toulon, robbing banks and exploring the meaning of life, in one of the most irreverent and ingenious novels of our time.

Synopsis:

"The Thought Gang" recounts the wild adventures of a philosophy lecturer and his one-eyed, one-legged, ex-convict partner as they blaze across France committing a series of bank robberies--all inspired by great works of philosophy. "A booze-fueled, high-wire act cum Tarantino road movie crossed with a (highly reliable) history of Western philosophy, plus jokes".--Lawrence Norfolk, "Details".
