Ramble Book: Musings on Childhood, Friendship, Family and 80s Pop Culture [9780008293345]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The long-awaited, rambling, tender, and very funny memoir from Adam Buxton - and a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week.

Ramble

/ ramb(a)l/

Verb

1. walk for pleasure in the countryside.

'Dr Buckles and Rosie the dog love rambling in the countryside.'

2. talk or write at length in a confused or inconsequential way.

'Adam rambles on about lots of consequential, compelling and personal matters in his tender, insightful, hilarious and totally unconfused memoir, Ramble Book.'

Ramble Book is about parenthood, boarding school trauma, arguing with your partner, bad parties, confrontations on trains, friendship, wanting to fit in, growing up in the 80s, dead dads, teenage sexual anxiety, failed artistic endeavours, being a David Bowie fan; and how everything you read, watch and listen to as a child forms a part of the adult you become.

It's also a book about the joys of going off topic and letting your mind wander.

And it's about a short, hairy, frequently confused man called Adam Buxton.


AUTHOR:

Adam Buxton is a British comedian, podcaster, actor and director who has appeared in films such as Hot Fuzz, Stardust and Son Of Rambow as well as a variety of TV shows in the UK.

He is the host of The Adam Buxton Podcast, in which celebrity interviews are bookended with walks in the Norfolk countryside, where he lives with his wife, three children and dog Rosie.

Since 2007 he has hosted BUG, a regular live show that combines music videos and original comedy. BUG became a TV series on Sky Atlantic in 2012.

Along with lifelong friend and director Joe Cornish, Adam is one half of TV, radio and podcast duo Adam & Joe who have worked together since 1995.

He is writing this himself in the third person and hasn't mentioned all the awards he's got and other fascinating stuff he's done because he doesn't want to appear conceited, but trust him, he's amazing.
