Defeated. Balding. Pungent. Mister Bob is troubled and cuts a pitiable figure in his job on long-distance trains.

His road to salvation starts in a most unlikely place: his bathtub.

Ride the rails with Mister Bob in Rub-A-Dub-Dub, through an underworld of private squalor, public shame and sublime bodily landscapes.

“An extraordinary first novel, comic and poignant”
John Robinson, Outside Left

“True greatness. A murky, pungent, beautiful tale. I ❤️ Mister Bob.” —
Fliss Kitson, The Nightingales.

Robert Wringham

Robert Wringham is a humour writer so devoted to his craft that he almost won the Leacock Medal but failed. He is the editor of New Escapologist magazine and the author of seven books including A Loose Egg, Melt It!, and Stern Plastic Owl. Novelist Luke Rhinehart described him as “the best prose writer I know” while comedian Stewart Lee has called his books “mini masterpieces.” Rub-A-Dub-Dub (P&H Books) is his first novel.
