He is the author of six novels, including Breakfast at Midnight (2012), described by 3AM magazine's Richard Marshall as "a perfect modern noir," and Cairo, shortlisted for the Guardian newspaper's 2014 Not-the-Booker Prize (both from Equus, London). His most recent collections of poetry are Indirect Objects (Vagabond, 2014) and Synopticon (with John Kinsella- LPB, 2012).

He directs the Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory in the Philosophy Faculty of Charles University where he also edits the international arts magazine VLAK. Critics on Breakfast at Midnight: "A twisted, brilliantly savage acid noir." - Benjamin Woodard, Numero Cinq "Armand has done for Prague what Genet achieves in Our Lady of the Flowers." - Jim Ruland, San Diego City Beat Critics on Canicule: "Baudelaire's mellow 'living proof of our immortality' done in the high pulp style." - Richard Marshall, 3: AM Magazine "Armand uses language to paint a picture just as vividly as if we were watching it unfold on screen." - Kristen Valentine, Black Heart Review Critics on Cairo: "A genre defying anti-novel... Like communism it is the movement of vast majorities unfettered by a state!" - Stewart Home, author of Blood Rites of the Bourgeoisie "Unflinching in its portrayal of human greed." - Sam Jordison, The Guardian"
