    CRASH! How I Lost a Hundred Billion and Found True Love (Kindle Single)
    by Julian Gough

    The UK Kindle Single #1 hit.

    Jude lives in a henhouse with no roof, that he bought for ten million euro, at the height of the Irish property bubble. One day, his mortgage is rated the debt in Europe most likely to default... The political and financial elite of Europe arrive, with a plan: help Jude put a roof on his henhouse, stabilize his debt, and reassure the markets. It all goes horribly wrong.

    "This novella is very funny – laugh-out-loud at times…Gough is one of our most talented satirists" — The Irish Independent

    by Julian Gough

    Shortlisted for both the Guardian's Not The Booker Prize, and the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize, Jude in London is an epic, comic exploration of the bizarre love triangle between language, consciousness, and reality. Which is all very well, if you're into that sort of thing.

    My first novel, of which I am very fond. The adventures of teenage twin sisters Juno & Juliet, in their first year away from home. Life, love and literature, in Galway and Tipperary.

Jude Level One: a masterpiece; joyous; on a par with that policeman who came after second but before next but one, and then some.

Level Two: what's left yer? Why's nothing delivered? Where is it, ye great idjeet? Is it lying part-done, left sad, on some Pee See? Or perhaps ye've lost the faith, it's left yer with nothing left..?

Speak man, speak. And tell. And recount...

It exists, Timothy! It has just been ferociously delayed, mostly by me. I did a lot of new writing for it, and still have some edits to go. But we are entering the final furlongs. It will be called Jude in London, it will have illustrations, and it should be published by Old Street some time in the first half of next year... Thanks for caring, and for the disguised comparison to The 3rd P*******n...

Ah Bless ye!

Havin' been away and about and not here, I can now see it is there in the window of the shop, like in the place with those ca-nals; all be-stockinged and be-jewelled, as it were, and I'm about to ask it "How much?" and "How far?"... And I'll let ye know how we get on, your new book and meself, in our quiet moments in the comfy place with sheets and the harder place with windows and the other places with their benches, sofas, lights, drinks, coffees, and what-naught...

Away and rest with ye now! 'Tis done, and finished, and - likely - grand...
