In Heaven The Onions Make You Laugh by Rob Auton

by Rob Auton


In Heaven The Onions Make You Laugh is the debut collection of poems, stories and illustrations from York born writer and comedian Rob Auton. This book is the result of a person having ideas who finds the world a magical/beautiful/ridiculous/horrific place to live. There is a poem about a grey cat in it, so if you like grey cats you might like that one. There is a short story about going round to Hitler’s house at Christmas, so if you did that then this could bring the memories flooding back. Dust, the sky, jury service, a rollerball pen, the devil, a Satsuma, tarmac and David Attenborough also feature.

It also includes the acclaimed A Footballer’s Life For Me which was filmed by Bang Said The Gun and broadcast as part of Channel 4′s Random Acts series.

“Charming, eccentric and uplifting, Auton is a talent to watch”
