Following Tim Ross’s recent success Streets of Your Town on ABC television, Tim will present his new book The Rumpus Room and other stories from the suburbs on Monday, May 22nd 2017 in Sydney.
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. In the book, 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.
Tim will discuss the ideas and stories behind his new book with Lucy Feagins from The Design Files at Grandfathers Axe, 171 High Street, Northcote, VIC, 3070. If you are in Sydney you can find tickets here.
We actually do hope that Tim’s book will be available in Europe too.
