    Description

    Includes an exclusive bonus podcast with Joe Cornish.

    The long-awaited, rambling, tender and very funny memoir from Adam Buxton.

    Ramble

    /ˈramb(ə)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 an audiobook 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.

    Commentaires

    "I recommend Ramble Book. There are wonderful, melancholy passages about his father, and Bowie, and 80s nostalgia, perfect for those of us who get teary-eyed remembering the first time we heard Dexys Midnight Runners or whatever. He writes jingles for the start of each chapter. He takes us on lovely, audio-only tangents. There used to be a solemnity to audiobook recording. Diverging from the set text was considered heretical. Adam’s book is full of the joys of doing the opposite.’ (Jon Ronson)

    lovely lovely lovely

    I can't quite put it into words how essential and fulfilling this bookcast was for me. Thanks Adam for being so candid - I have been listening intently since the 6 music days... I hope to receive another ten years of weekly auditory injections of bliss.
    Love you, bye!

    Really enjoyed this, thoroughly recommend it. The bonus podcast at the end was what can only be described as Jimmy good.

    Authentic, warm and honest.

    Adam’s book is a must for fans (and he has many) who have grown up with his work. His early life and family experiences will resonate with anyone growing up in the 80s. His superpower (although he doesn’t seem to notice this himself) is how natural and unique he is at connecting with the people he interviews and how he brings light and warmth to his ramble chats. You will always be lifted by reading or listening to him. I hope that he focuses on writing more.

    Loses one star for dismissing the music of Tin Machine

    Less an autobiography, more like spending a pleasant day with Mr Buxton. Warm, charming, funny and tender. Strikes a nostalgic chord with all those of our generation who experienced the thrill of setting up an Atari 2600 or scared ourselves half to death in a darkened room trying to watch Alien on TV.

    Probably the best book of the year so far.

    It’s impossible to be subjective here when my youth and adult life has been enhanced by Adam Buxton in so many ways. I knew i’d like it, but I didn’t think i’d love it quite as much as i did. There’s a very Bill Bryson/David Sedaris quality to the story telling which I enjoyed a great deal and took everything in a direction I wasn’t expecting. I think if you’re a newcomer to Adam Buxton there’s more than enough to entertain and leave you wanting more and to a longtime fan it’s a touching, funny and expertly written memoir.

    Perfect for any Adam and Joe fans.

    Really enjoyed this audiobook but didn't expect anything else. Adam is hilarious as usual and I found myself tearing up a bit as i heard of the final few days of Bad Dad.

    Thought Joe's appearance at the end was the perfect end to a great listen, and I would pay money to hear those two regularly again in a podcast.

    if you like Adam's podcasts, you'll enjoy this!

    everything you would expect if you've listened to Adam's ramblechats: funny, open, honest and in parts very moving. the bonus podcast episode at the end is also excellent.
