Robert Wringham (born Robert Westwood on 28 November 1982) is a writer and editor from Dudley.
In 2012, Go Faster Stripe published Wringham's non-fiction book You Are Nothing, a history of Dadaesque comedy troupe Cluub Zarathustra, whose members included Stewart Lee, Simon Munnery, Kevin Eldon, Julian Barratt, Graham Linehan, Sally Phillips and Johnny Vegas.
Wringham is editor and publisher of New Escapologist, a lifestyle magazine founded in 2007, the content of which offers "escape routes from the present-day predicaments of demeaning work, status anxiety and urban lethargy." The tone of the magazine alternates between light humor, black comedy and prescriptive polemic. Notable features have included work by or interviews with Alain de Botton, Lord Whimsy, Dave Thompson; Joshua Glenn; and Luke Rhinehart.
His pseudonym comes from James Hogg's Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner.
