Goat Lips delivers a thought-provoking romp through a lapsed Englishman's life, who - after a quarter century of living in the United States - realized he'd neglected to renew his subscription to England.
Matthew's relentless wit and insight is front and center as we bounce between England and the United States, experiencing one hilarious, and sometimes poignant, tale after another - from escaping the clutches of the law to the pain and joy of parenthood, discovering the dangers of real ale and the agony of not being heard, whilst savoring a fiery dessert, the glamour of show business, the awkwardness of nakedness, and the utter wrongness of a Jesus piñata! His ability to question the assumptions of everyday life with a wry grin, tender touch, and a twinkle in his kind eyes makes Matthew's tales endlessly entertaining. You'll want to hear them more than once and even share them aloud with others in your best English accent.

Jolly good!

I had only relatively low expectations for this book. Typically, short stories don't quite hit the mark for me. Also, English humor usually strikes me as trying to be funny, but not actually attaining the goal. However, Goat Lips way overachieved on both levels! All of the stories ranged from reasonably funny to hilarious; except for the few that were meant to be poignant. The narration was also excellent, adding another layer of enjoyment to a very fine book. This was a most enjoyable change of pace from what I usually enjoy. I encourage you to let Matthew Taylor bring new meaning to goat lips, and several other things, with his work. I received this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Hilarious look at the life of a comedian

Fascinating look into the life of a comedian and how everyday situations become the fuel for his comedy. The story of the "goat lips" is prevalent throughout the book in its scope and impact. Love the line about jiggle stoppers. Great read great narration. Optimum listening speed 1.25. I received this audiobook for free from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review.
