Publisher's Synopsis

The countdown to the millennium has begun, and people are losing their heads. A so-called Y2K expert gives a presentation to Scotland's eccentric Tech Laird T.S. Mole's entourage in Edinburgh, and soon long hours, days, weeks and months fill with seemingly chaotic and frantic work on the 'bug problem'. Soon enough it'll be just minutes and seconds to go to midnight. Is the world about to end, or will everyone just wake up the next day with the same old New Year's Day hangover? A book about what we know and don't know, about how we communicate and fail to, My Book of Revelations moves from historical revelations to the personal, and climaxes in the bang and flare of fireworks, exploding myths and offering a glimpse of a scandal that will rock Scotland into the twenty-first century. As embers fall silently to earth, all that is left to say is: Are we working in the early days of a better nation? Praise for Hood's fiction: '[My Book of Revelations] is driven by an inexhaustible stream of imagination and Hood's fearless desire to leave narrative conventions behind and fly unfettered into a realm of pure ideas. There are definite echoes of Lanark… and a sense that the Glasgow-born Hood is joining in, and extending, a conversation that's been going on in the more adventurous Scots literature for the past century.' - Alastair Mabbott The Herald 'Astonishing, funny, bonkers, charming, disturbing, challenging, audacious, and, ultimately, profound.' Melissa Fu, author of Peach Blossom Spring 'So dark and poetic, so original and intelligent, and so utterly unputdownable.' Tim Ewins, author of We Are Animals 'If you like your fiction fresh, original and challenging, This Good Book is for you.' Simon van der Velde, author of Backstories
