Welcome to the uproarious, brazen, plaintive and acerbic world of BBC Radio 4 regular Chris Neill
in "What Is This Thing Called, Love?" Neill subverts our age’s obsession with introspective memoir and drills down into the fertile landscape of not only his own life but that of his neighbours and friends, too. Through a hilarious, keen-eyed exploration of his own abundant failings and cock-ups, you’ll be introduced to his distinctive worldview - simultaneously take-no-prisoners yet benign and benevolent… An elderly woman complains about her husband’s failed suicide preparations; a small boy falls in love with a donkey; a secondary school’s dirty magazine lending library stumbles at the arrival of video; for a broken-hearted man is a dog an improvement on a boyfriend? Through it all is Neill’s distinctive voice. Fearless, fecund and fresh.
“Blissfully well written. Neill may be first and foremost a comedian, but his observations are as acute as any novelist’s. Sweet, sharp and very funny.” THE TIMES"
