Jerome K. When Jerome wrote his most famous work in he was a struggling journalist and writer.
As soon as it was published he became a literary success beyond his wildest dreams. Jerome also delights in numerous discursions, from exploring the history and local lore of riverside towns to relaying a seemingly endless store of humorous anecdotes. The colourful endpapers also feature a lively map of the Thames drawn by Cox — complete with menacing swans — making this the perfect edition of a book that is as charming as the very act of messing about in boats. Jerome Klapka Jerome was born in England in and is best known for his humorous and satirical writing as a novelist and playwright.
After leaving school at 14, Jerome worked as a railway clerk, a journalist and a teacher before publishing his first book On the Stage — and Off His next two books The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow and Three Men in a Boat were both very successful and cemented his career as a writer. Jerome helped to found The Idler magazine and worked on this for five years; he then wrote a number of plays and further novels, including Three Men on the Bummel His unquestionable talent has seen him receive commissions from newspapers and magazines on both sides of the Atlantic, including the Daily Telegraph , the Spectator , Vanity Fair and The Times.
A satisfying collection of deliciously dark tales, from the unrivalled master of the comic short story — perfect for savouring one by one, or gobbled up in a single sitting. Produced in series with the novels of Jeeves and Wooster previously published by The Folio Society, these three volumes of stories form a delicious addition for fans, or a superb introduction for those not yet acquainted with the delights of Wodehouse. A cycling jaunt in Germany provides the backdrop for this laugh-out-loud novel from the master of Victorian quick wit; the escapades beautifully illustrated by Paul Cox.
