WIN! In one word, what does 'Rumpus Room' mean to you?

Let's play a word association game - and one lucky entrant will win Tim Ross's sensational new book The Rumpus Room.

Many of us grew up with a Rumpus Room but now it is often a room transformed into a study, parents retreat or an extra bedroom. Yet the memories remain. And that's where this book comes in...

"From the beachside holiday house to the backyard pool and the rumpus room, the architecture of the suburbs forms the backdrop to a uniquely Australian way of life. In the book, Ross roams through these familiar places to paint a picture of Australian domesticity and its relationship to the Australian psyche in all its funny, nostalgic, ironic and often acutely cringe-worthy glory."

Tell us in the comments what word comes to mind when we say 'Rumpus Room'...

Each comment is an entry into the competition to win Tim's book. Be creative!

Contest ends at 12:00pm AEST on 30 June, 2017.
