Product Description
 
Jerome Klapka Jerome was born in Walsall, Staffordshire, in 1859 but was brought up and educated in London. He started work as a railway clerk at fourteen, and later was employed as a schoolmaster, actor and journalist. He published two volumes of comic essays and in 1889 Three Men in a Boat. This was an instant success. His new-found wealth enabled him to become one of the founders of The Idler, a humorous magazine which published pieces by W. W. Jacobs, Bret Harte, Mark Twain and others. In 1900 he penned a sequel, The Men on a Bummel, which followed three protagonists on a walking tour through Germany. Jerome wrote a number of plays, the most famous being The Passing of the Third Floor Back, which is the morality tale set in a boarding-house where a charismatic Christ-like figure transforms the lives of its inhabitants. Jerome married in 1888 and had a daughter. He served as an ambulance driver on the Western Front in World War I and died in 1927.Jerome Klapka Jerome was born in Walsall, Staffordshire, in 1859 but was brought up and educated in London.
