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

    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...) > Juno et Juliet

For what reason I can not remember, but the cover art was etched in memory and the recommendation high. Then one day as I passed the book return cart at the library I saw it, this time in real time. I instantly checked it out and started reading that afternoon which is odd due to the fact I’m a one read at a time person. Hummmmm why start another when I love the one I’m with? Let me tell you why… this book you wrote called to my senses. Thank you on so many levels.

I would be interested to see how my friends all develop through time…. hated to say goodbye. 2011 - ten years later … what do you think they are up to?

Regards,
Christy

Juno & Juliet, yes, I do wonder. I'd have to write another book to find out, though. I'm afraid I've no special knowledge of how their lives went, after the last page, the last time...

If I ever find out, I'll tell you...
