About this item

No writer can get more laughs out of economic disaster than two-time Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse finalist Julian Gough, whose piercing satire deftly elucidates complicated economic concepts through humor and absurdity.

Jude, a profoundly unsuccessful chicken 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, Crash! will delight and infuriate in equal measure as an excellent primer on the Eurozone crisis in particular and international monetary policy in general. And for readers unacquainted with the wonderful and bizarre universe of Julian Gough’s literary fiction, this bestselling short story will serve as a perfect introduction.
