Comedian Tim ‘Rosso’ Ross draws inspiration from his acclaimed ABC television series Streets Of Your Town with this selection of short stories from the suburbs.

From the beachside holiday house to the backyard pool and the rumpus room, the architecture of the suburbs forms the backdrop to a uniquely Australian way of life. Ross roams through these familiar places to paint a picture of Australian domesticity and its relationship to the Australian psyche in all its funny, nostalgic, ironic and often acutely cringe-worthy glory.

“If you ever tried to pinch a sip of Mum’s West Coast Cooler or thought that no culinary master would ever match the delights of the Margaret Fulton cookbook, you’ll love whiling away the afternoon in The Rumpus Room. NB. Bring a plate” Russell Jackson, The Guardian.

“Tim understands the Australian psyche in a way few of his contemporaries do” Rolling Stone.

"I wanted the book to physically have a sense of nostalgia to match these stories that are a mixture of memoir and fiction. I was rolling around with the concepts of the suburbs for a couple of years making Streets Of Your Town and these stories reflect a more personal side to where we live. Travelling for the series and for my Man About the House tour was incredibly inspiring and this is represented in this book." Tim Ross
