Read full description of the books:Far too set in her ways for someone her age, failed dancer turned graphic designer Oceane doesn't get out much. Luckily there's a lot you can do in your room these days...In this completely original, deliciously raunchy novel, Tibor Fischer returns to top form to give us a story of a woman searching the world in order to understand her past. Starting in the cramped confines of a South London apartment, Voyage to the End of the Room takes its funny (and foulmouthed) heroine to the nightclubs of Barcelona, the battlefields of the Balkans, and a reckoning on the Micronesian island of Chuuk, shedding memories and finding answers along the way. Combining Fischer's trademark sardonic wit and offbeat imaginative flair, the result is a compelling page-turner that doubles as a darkly hilarious meditation on how and whether you can ever really know other people, the nature of evil, what is reality-and whether you can fake it.
Read information about the authorTibor Fischer is a British novelist and short story writer. In 1993 he was selected by the influential literary magazine Granta as one of the 20 best young British writers.
Fischer's parents were Hungarian basketball players, who fled Hungary in 1956. The bloody 1956 revolution, and his father's background, informed Fischer's debut novel Under the Frog, a Rabelaisian yarn about a Hungarian basketball player surviving Communism. The title is derived from a Hungarian saying, that the worst possible place to be is under a frog's arse down a coal mine.
In 2009 Fischer became the Royal Literary Fund writing fellow at City and Guilds of London Art School.
