Having survived the hazards of the great English waterway - plus the outrageous behaviour of that dog - in their debut novel, THREE MEN IN A BOAT, we re-join our heroes George, Harris and Jerome on a bicycle tour through the Black Forest. What is a bummel, you may ask? It is a journey, long or short, without an end; the only thing regulating it being the necessity of getting back within a given time to the point from which one started ... As the trio encounters misadventures involving transport, the weather, and the usually tranquil locals, chaos and mayhem again reign supreme
The idle thoughts of an idle fellow, a book for an idle holiday by Jerome K Jerome( Book )
292 editions published between 1880 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 1,062 libraries worldwide
Unsurpassed as a work of literary and comic genius, Jerome K Jerome's Idle Thoughts is a wonderful set of essays detailing the author's view on a variety of topics, from babies and being hard up to cats and dogs, furnished apartments and being in love, as this extract shows: 'Questions of taste were soon decided in those days. When a twelfth-century youth fell in love he did not take three paces backward, gaze into her eyes, and tell her she was too beautiful to live. He said he would step outside and see about it. And if, when he got out, he met a man and broke his head - the other man's head, I mean - then that proved that his - the first fellow's - girl was a pretty girl. But if the other fellow broke his head - not his own, you know, but the other fellow's - the other fellow to the second fellow, that is, because of course the other fellow would only be the other fellow to him, not the first fellow who - well, if he broke his head, then his girl - not the other fellow's, but the fellow who was the - Look here, if A broke B's head, then A's girl was a pretty girl; but if B broke A's head, then A's girl wasn't a pretty girl, but B's girl was. That was their method of conducting art criticism. Nowadays we light a pipe and let the girls fight it out among themselves'

Diary of a pilgrimage : and six essays by Jerome K Jerome( Book )
84 editions published between 1891 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 293 libraries worldwide
"The passion play at Oberammergau is unique, and to many people a journey to see it would be something of a pilgrimage. Such a journey is the subject of this comic novel, very much in the style of Jerome's big success, Three Men in a Boat. The journey is made by rail, and the humour is on such subjects as the obscurity of railway timetables." --

Told after supper by Jerome K Jerome( Book )
42 editions published between 1891 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 194 libraries worldwide
Told After Supper (1891) is a collection of short ghost stories written by the English writer Jerome K. Jerome. The collection's "introductory" starts as follows: "It was Christmas Eve. I begin this way because it is the proper, orthodox, respectable way to begin [...] The experienced reader knows it was Christmas Eve, without my telling him. It always is Christmas Eve, in a ghost story." Hence, all the short stories included here happen on Christmas Eve and their events are marked with the presence of supernatural elements. Being all told by a first-person narrator, the stories are entitled "How the Stories Came to be Told," Teddy Biffles' story," "The Doctor's story," "Mr. Coombe's Story," "My Uncle's Story," "A Personal Explanation," and "My Own Story." Jerome mingles the fantastic with humor and even tells jokes about ghosts to mix the feeling of fear with laughter. He classifies these nightly visitors into "middle-class ghosts," "young ghosts," "conscientious ghosts," "average British ghosts," and "lady specters" who are "contradictory and snappish, and liable to burst into tears." They all hold their annual feast on Christmas Eve, their "great gala night."
