    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.

Well, I don't believe authors should have opinions. So if the characters in my stories have opinions (and many of them have), those opinions are not necessarily my own. If I do (as a private individual, rather than an author) have an opinion in this area, it is that a nation is a delusional state. "Foreigners" do not exist; the entire category is a demented mental construct. OK, I have to go to bed now, but will try and answer your questions in more detail tomorrow. (If I forget to, you can remind me.) Best of luck with your project...
