Published in 1900, this sequel of sorts to the classic Three Men in a Boat features the same three characters—J. (the narrator and stand-in for the author), and his friends George and Harris—embarking on a "bummel"—"a journey, long or short, without an end," as J. describes it—through the Black Forest.
About 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.
