Musician, artist and Wire contributor Momus has published his first novel, UnAmerica. The story traces a sports shop employee, who is tasked by God to set sail and undiscover America – a country which has drifted far from His original plans. Momus (aka Nick Currie) told the Irish Times: "I tried to fill the book with all the unAmerican things I could, from Krafkwerk to Euripides, yet situate them in this little town in South Carolina... In a larger sense, it’s what America is supposed to do: absorb new people and new ideas and make them American."
