Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to a 'T'. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of pineapple chunks - not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency. "Three Men in a Boat" was an instant success when it appeared in 1889, and, with its benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian 'clerking classes', it hilariously captured the spirit of its age.

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.
