9781434102829: Three Men in a Boat

Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) is a hilarious account by Jerome K. Jerome of three overworked friends who decide to take a boating holiday on the River Thames between Kingston and Oxford. Of course, nothing goes according to plan, and the reulting mayhem with such things as tents, camping stoves, and a plaster-of-paris trout trophy creates some of the most entertaining reading ever. A perennial favorite, the book has sold in huge numbers. "I pay Jerome so much in royalties," the publisher told a friend, "I cannot imagine what becomes of all the copies of that book I issue. I often think the public must eat them." Since its initial publication, Three Men in a Boat has never been out of print. In 2003, The Guardian placed it #33 on The 100 Greatest Novels of All Time; in 2009, Esquire placed it #2 in the 50 Funniest Books Ever. If you're looking for laugh-out-loud humor and an entertaining story, you'll definitely find both in Three Men in a Boat. Newly designed and typeset in a 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.

About the Author:

Jerome K Jerome was born in Walsall in Staffordshire, England in 1859. He was the youngest of the four children of Jerome Clapp Jerome, who was a preacher and architect. His first work was On the Stage and Off, published in 1885. This novel, and the play Barbara, are inspired by his experiences in the theatre. This was followed by several plays, books and magazine articles. He is best known for his comic rendition of a boating holiday taken by three friends, Three Men in a Boat. The story is loosely based on his own various experiences of boating on the Thames. The three men are a fictionalised representations of Jerome himself, and two of his friends, George Wingrave and Carl Hentschel. He followed this up with a sequel, Three Men in a Bummel, but this was not as popular as the first book, which has become one of the most well-loved books of all time.
