Best known as the author of Three Men in a Boat, Jerome K Jerome was born in Walsall, Staffordshire, on 2 May, 1859. Youngest of four children, he spent his childhood in relative poverty. He left his school at the age of fourteen before working variously as a clerk, a hack journalist, an actor and a schoolteacher. His first book, On the Stage and Off was published in 1885, and this was followed by numerous plays, books and magazine articles. In 1927, one year after writing his autobiography, My Life and Times, he was made a Freeman of the Borough of Walsall. He died later the same year and was buried in Ewelme in Oxfordshire.
Here are three men seeking a break from what they believe is a hard, painful life. And since they are extremely allergic to work (of any kind or degree), they look forward to an idyllic, workless, boating holiday on the Thames. So off they go with Montmorency, the brave dog who’s scared of cats, but things fall apart in the most hilarious ways possible.
One of the most well-loved books of all time, it has had generations of readers in splits, page after page!
