Product description

Review

"Who would have thought that a book about two disillusioned teachers of philosophy travelling round the country, talking about, among other things, Kierkegaard and the death of philosophy could be so gripping? Lars Iyer, however, has made it so, partly because he is often so funny and partly because he and his protagonists really do believe, and persuade us to believe, in the values they see disappearing before their eyes, under the pressure of successive philistine governments. In the end this, like the work of Patrick Keiller, but much funnier, is a book both about Britain today and about what is precious and needs to be preserved." --Gabriel Josipovici judge of The Goldsmiths Prize 2013

There are few more exciting writers at work today than Lars Iyer....The hilarious despair of his first two novels, Spurious and Dogma, seems to have touched a chord, each receiving near unanimous acclaim. [In] his third novel, Exodus... the comedy is a little blacker this time around, and the black a little funnier still. --Totally Dublin

"Lars Iyer...has been redefining the existential anti-hero for several years now, combining fiction and philosophy with great wit and invention." --The Times Literary Supplement

'Iyer's magnificent barbed eloquence. It's curiously profound, strangely touching and, best of all, deeply insulting.' --The Observer
