The Rumpus Room is a heavily pictorial book and Rosso describes it as a coffee table book for people who don't have particularly good coffee table.
I wanted the book to physically have a sense of nostalgia to match these stories that are a mixture of memoir and fiction, he said. 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 for me and this is represented in this book.
 Tim "Rosso" Ross, one of Australia's best known comedian's, has an extensive career in radio, television and writing.
