Meet the Author


Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859-1927) was a British humorist and travel writer. As an actor, journalist, and short story writer, he had little luck for much of his early career. He is best known for the charming and often hilarious Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), an account of a laconic boating expedition, based on a similar trip he and his wife took.
