About the Author
JEROME K. JEROME, born in 1859 in England, was a novelist and playwright whose humour won him a wide readership. Working first as a railway clerk, then as a school teacher, an actor, and a journalist, he wrote his first book On the Stage—and Off in 1885. His next books, The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow and Three Men in a Boat were his great successes, however. He was also co-editor of a monthly magazine that he helped found called The Idler. His many other works include Three Men on the Bummel, Paul Kelver, and My Life and Times, along with a number of plays. He died in 1927.
