Read full description of the books:
"CRASH! How I Lost a Hundred Billion and Found True Love" is a comic romp through the sovereign debt crisis, in which a hapless chicken farmer and his roofless henhouse turn out to be the hollow center around which the world economy turns.
Jude, a profoundly unsuccessful poultry farmer, finds himself at the center of Europe’s sovereign debt crisis when Europe’s economic elite convince him that his roofless henhouse needs to become too big to fail. What starts out as a simple roofing job quickly spirals into a hundred-billion euro project to cover Jude’s native Squanderland in solar panels. But when the latest Eurozone scheme plunges his homeland into darkness, Jude must decide whether listening to the experts or listening to his heart will ultimately save his homeland, himself, and his beloved hen, Enda.
As hilarious as it is illuminating, this short story, released as a DailyLit Original, will delight and infuriate in equal measure. And for readers unacquainted with the wonderful and bizarre universe of Julian Gough’s fiction, this story will serve as a perfect introduction.
