Hello. I’m Robert Wringham.

Despite being one of the laziest people in the world, I’ve written five books. Five!

But you might know me as the voice of New Escapologist or from my column in the Idler.

Mainly, I write miscellaneous short pieces as any humorist should. 800 words then go home.

I sometimes do a bit of capering, having them in the aisles and whatnot.

And I have a mailing list you can join for an occasional newsletter. It’s the winning alternative to social media.

But I’m also on social media. πŸ™

Have a poke around my website, maybe starting with my favourite shorts or my latest post. Go wild. I hope you like it. Just wipe your flippin’ feet, were you born in a barn? You were? I beg your pardon.


Current Doings

My second miscellany Stern Plastic Owl just landed.

And my first novel, Rub-a-Dub-Dub is in the works.
