The Sunken Restaurant and Other Verse is a light-hearted but incisive collection of comic verse written during the 1980’s. We hear how a plan for a gourmet restaurant aboard a large boat is threatened when the boat slips its moorings and gracefully sinks below the water; what happens when a town in Georgia passes a law that everyone must own a gun; who complains when a city announces a ban on private ownership of lions, tigers or bears. These are some of the targets of Philip Taylor's hilarious poetry in this newly published collection.

This compendium of his outrageous rhymes and pointed barbs is made more vibrant by the accompaniment of some expressive line drawings by his daughter, Camilla Taylor.

About the Author

Philip Taylor has been writing funny poems since the 1980's, when his rhyming political commentaries became a hit on the weekly program "Signatures" on Cleveland's public television station WVIZ. All this humor had been thoroughly repressed in his day job as a Professor at Case Western Reserve University, in which his copious writing on topics like "A Quantum Approach to Condensed Matter Physics" provided zero opportunity for wisecracks and drollery. Although he has no fewer than six physics phenomena named after him, he shrugs off his fame in science with the modest exhortation "Ah, but you should read my poetry if you want a real laugh!" We should all take his advice.
