Summary

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 the lives 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 brokenhearted man is a dog an improvement on a boyfriend? Through it all is Neill’s distinctive voice. Fearless, fecund and fresh.

Wonderful, witty and a great observation of life, love, death and the funny bits that happen on our journey.
