Mum Had a Kingswood: Tales from the life and mind of Rosso (Tim Ross)

Mum Had a Kingswood: Tales from the life and mind of Rosso
Tim Ross

Blurb: 'This book reminds me of a lot of Rosso: funny, smart and delightful to hang out with even when you're sober.' - Judith Lucy

'It's a warped and witty, tunnel-vision glimpse of the world. (Certifiably warped.) Do funny things just happen to funny people? Or is it just because of the heavy drugs, testosterone and bat-induced rabies? Either way, Rosso makes me laugh a lot. We need madmen to keep us semi-sane. Onya, Tim.' - Ray Martin

It's a book. A funny book. A funny book by Tim 'Rosso' Ross.

But what's in this funny book I hear you ask?

Well, it's all manner of stories from the life and mind of Tim Ross. There are warm, fuzzy childhood stories of billycarts and milk bars. There are teenage stories of angst, girls, bad clothes and bad hair. There are student tales of share-house madness and misery. And there are adult tales of living out a rock 'n' roll dream, doing stand-up, being on the telly and entertaining the nation on the radio every day.

In between all these wonderful tales, there are rants and raves, ideas and fantastical stories. Just stuff really. Wonderful stuff from the mind of Tim 'Rosso' Ross. This is his book. It's part memoir, part brain dump. And he's written it just for you.
