Search - List of Books by Tibor Fischer

Tibor Fischer (born November 15, 1959 in Stockport, England) 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, having 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 1992, Under the Frog won a Betty Trask Prize for literature, and was shortlisted for the prestigious Booker prize.

Subsequent novels include The Thought Gang, about an unemployed and alcoholic philosophy professor who hooks up with a failed one-armed bandit in France to form a successful team of bank robbers, and The Collector Collector, about a weekend in South London, narrated by a 5000 year old Sumerian pot.

Fischer has also published a book of short stories, Don't Read This Book If You're Stupid (published in the U.S. as I Like Being Killed: Stories).

Fischer's novel, Voyage to the End of the Room was published in 2003.

His new novel, "Good to be God" was published by Alma Books on September 4, 2008.

In 2009 Fischer became the Royal Literary Fund writing fellow at City and Guilds of London Art School.

Fischer is represented by Louise Greenberg Books Ltd.
