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

In his dedication page to Stage-Land (published in 1889), Jerome K. Jerome writes: "To that highly respectable but unnecessarily retiring individual of whom we hear so much but see so little, the earnest student of the drama, this (comparatively) truthful little book is lovingly dedicated." He then proceeds to humorously, and often with scathing precision, examine those characters who inhabit the world of the stage, namely, such hilarious stereotypes as the Hero, the Comic Lovers, the Irishman, the Lawyer and most famously, and the Villain, who " always wears patent leather boots."
Diary of a pilgrimage : and six essays by Jerome K Jerome( Book )
82 editions published between 1891 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 282 libraries worldwide
While it is beyond doubt that Jerome K. Jerome is most well known for his comic masterpiece Three Men in a Boat, the range of his other literary achievements is staggering. Journalist, playwright and author, a wealth of his writing has remained just beyond the public gaze. Diary of a Pilgrimage is one such work. The pilgrimage of the title is a journey to see the famous Passion Play at Oberammergau, which has been performed every ten years since 1634, the middle of the Thirty Years War. Diary is a typically witty account of this journey, part travelogue and part social commentary. It is also a

Told after supper by Jerome K Jerome( Book )
39 editions published between 1891 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 180 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."
