Jerome K. Jerome

Photograph of Jerome published in the 1890s Jerome Klapka Jerome (2 May 1859 – 14 June 1927) was an English writer and humourist, best known for the comic travelogue ''Three Men in a Boat'' (1889). 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''; and several other novels. Jerome was born in Walsall, England, and, although he was able to attend grammar school, his family suffered from poverty at times, as did he as a young man trying to earn a living in various occupations. In his twenties, he was able to publish some work, and success followed. He married in 1888, and the honeymoon was spent on a boat on the Thames; he published ''Three Men in a Boat'' soon afterwards. He continued to write fiction, non-fiction and plays over the next few decades, though never with the same level of success. Provided by Wikipedia
