Oceane, succesful computer graphics desinger, likes to travel, but dosen't like to go out; in fact she never leaves home. Her solution is to bring the world to her South London flat using satelite, the internet and passing foreigners. Her lifestyle suits her unit she starts getting letters from an ex - an ex who died ten years ago.
Utilising the services of Audley, failed mercenary and debt collector, Oceane has to start searching the world. Weaving from the sex clubs of Barcelona to the battlefields of Yugoslavia, this is a meditation on a random world, why ketchup is important and why the Audit Commission rated Lamberth Council as one of the worst in the country.
"Much of the book, indeed, is taken up with observational riffs on subjects, from London restaurant prices to begging techniques, that hardly seem necessary to the novel. Voyage is, overall, an easy, amusing read, but it suffers from a chatty slackness that is the enemy of really good comic prose." (Steven Poole, The Guardian )
"It's a splat of clay scattered with gem chips -- or, one suspects, literally a collection of very acute ideas from a notebook that Fischer carries around, ideas that looked like they'd be good in a novel, whatever the next one eventually turned out to be about." (Gavin McNett, The Washington Post)
