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”
“Surreal and Fantastic.”
“A strange and magical experience.”
