The Thought Gang by Tibor Fischer

The story is about a fat philosopher who robs banks, mostly, but the book is all about wordplay and black humour and fast-paced wit. One zinger after another. Nice short chapters. I thought it was great, except for a couple of dirty bits that kind of caught me off guard. Otherwise it's a really enjoyable book. There's praise on the back cover from Tom Robbins, which is a good clue for whether you'll like it or not. I agree with his assessment: "Strange and wonderful! This cat can flat-out write!"
