  • 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.

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

Forum (Talk Talk Talk...) > Moral dilemma

We have a moral dilemma in this country and seeking guidance. Our ex scrumhalf from the 95 world cup, Joost Van .. literally got caught with his pants down on a cellphone camera. Firstly, there was some white powder of sorts ingested through the nasal passages. Secondly, there was a similarly undressed female in the room who was not his wife (2nd nogal) but most damning the man in the video was wearing broekies (underpants) with holes. The country is up in arms and Joost is quick to deny that he would never be seen wearing holey underpants.

Are we missing the plot or what.
Is there an official ranking system for degrees of embarrassment.


PS what are the people up to in Knock looking at the sky this time?

Well, I do sympathise with your nation in its hour of disgrace, Capetonian. But have you not been following the exciting events at Knock? Apparitions, littering, everything.

Look at this:

Shocking stuff altogether. Puts your knickerless scrumhalf in the ha'penny place.
