Summary

George, William, and J. agree on one thing. They're overworked and need a rest. A week on "the rolling deep" — they decide — may be just the thing! So off they go with Montmorency, the dog, anticipating the joys of long, lazy days during a glorious Victorian summer. What happens to these bungling bachelors on a two-week rowing excursion up the Thames provides fodder for one of the best-known classics of English humor.
Jerome's timeless comedy follows the trio's misadventures as they struggle with camping equipment and meal preparation, confront rampant hypochondria and unreliable weather, and contend with other disasters — all of which trumpet simple truths that still resonate today.

Author Biography

Welsh humorist Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859–1927) attempted a variety of professions, from railway worker to actor to journalist before finding success with a comic memoir and collection of essays, Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow. His Three Men in a Boat sold more than a million copies in its first two decades, and it remains a classic of humor and travel writing.
