Literary synopsis

A series of short speculative fictions which envision possible future Scotlands, avoiding at all costs the "wooden tongue" of official discourse. Imagine "the Scotland in which four hundred years of strong influence from Calvin are replaced by four hundred years of strong influence from Calvino".

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

Momu’s work is concerned with making up, telling and re-telling stories. His work is "postproduction" in Nicolas Bourriaud's sense; it remakes existing narratives –in this case, jokes. He is “drawn to short forms”.
