    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

    Jude in London
    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.

    Juno and Juliet
    by Julian Gough

    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.


    "Like Roddy Doyle in an extremely good mood" - The Washington Post

    "A modern, at times brilliantly ironic reworking of the classical fairytale, with nods to Shakespeare, Austen and Beckett." - Literary Review

    "Hugely entertaining" - Vogue

Forum (Talk Talk Talk...) > Lyrics

Do you know anywhere the lyrics to your songs are posted? I've been looking for them and can't find them... perhaps a section on the website? Is it actually a very obvious link with flashing neon colours in front of my face?

Sorry for the late reply, Deirdre. The Toasted Heretic lyrics aren't on the website, or indeed anywhere on the internet, at the moment, mostly because they were published in a book last year, and my publisher has old-fashioned ideas about not giving them away. But I'm happy to email you any and all of them, if you like. (You can send me your email address through the "mail me" button down below on the right, or just email me at ). Otherwise, all my lyrics and poems are in a book called Free Sex Chocolate - Poems & Songs, that Salmon Poetry publish. Here's a couple of links:

Amazon UK:

Amazon US:

And at Salmon:

Hope that helps...

Thank you! I'm not sure if you see any money from Amazon sales, but for £10.99 and shipping I think I'll buy the book, definitely a fan of your writing and it looks like an interesting collection. (I might e-mail you anyway.)

Oh, you sweetheart. If you buy it, Jessie of Salmon Poetry will be able to afford biscuits with her morning cup of tea. (This would be a very good thing, and you will have made the world a better place.)

I do hope you enjoy them.
