Ramble

/'ramb(?)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.
