- THREE MEN IN A BOAT
DetailsThree hypochondriacs J, Harris, and George. Montmorency anangelic-looking fox-terrier whose idea of life is to fight withother disreputable dogs. A boat. And a two-week jaunt up the Thames, from Kingston to Oxford. On a seemingly ordinary evening, J, Harris, and George, sitting in J's room, smoking, talking and generally feeling seedy, decide that a boat trip up the Thames is just the thing they need to make them snap out of their troublesome state (the name of which, they just could not decide). 'Three Men In A Boat' is the fictional account of this motley group, as they sail up and down the Thames. It's a part-comic part-serious travelogue that's full of anecdotes and vividly descriptive pieces on the places and the characters that the three men pass on their trip. Though they set off with much enthusiasm, the three men could have hardly predicted the troubles that would follow them on this jaunt. From tow ropes that have a mind of their own, to weather that is unbelievably unreliable, pineapple tin cans that refuse to open, and the mysterious disappear-ance of Harris and a pie. This is classic British humour with its timelessness andend urability. ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Jerome Klapka Jerome was a noted English humorist, novelist and playwright, best known for his humorous and comic masterpiece 'Three Men in a Boat'. Other works include the essay collections Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow (1886) and Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow; Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to Three Men in a Boat (Packing for the journey); and several other novels. Living alone in London’s dingy quarters and working as a clerk, he never lost hope and at the age of nineteen, joined a repertory troupe, returning penniless to London after three years. Subsequently, working in various capacities, he started writing essays, short stories and satires; experiencing first success with ‘On the Stage—and Off’, which after a series of rejection, began to be serialized in a journal, edited by a retired actor, Aylmer Gowing. However, he remains best known for his comic travelogue ‘Three Man in a Boat’, depicting a two-week boating holiday on the River Thames. Since its publication, the book has never been out of print.
