Publisher's Summary

Following the great success of Three Men in a Boat, a friend of mine said, "Well now, why don't you write a sensible book? I should like to see you make people think."

"Do you believe it can be done then?" I asked.

"Well, try," he replied.

Diary of a Pilgrimage is a story bubbling with Jerome's wit and whimsy interspersed with intervals of calm reflection. Written in 1891, it is the tale of a journey to see the Passion Play at Oberammergau. Many of his light hearted remarks prove to be acute observations of contemporary life, many of which hold true to this day. This is a wonderful piece of Jerome literature that fully deserves its place in the sun.

    "A gem of a book"

    This books is a well crafted balance between whimsy and serious philosophical thought. It might be considered impossible to write a humorous account of what is,to many, a deeply religious experience, but JKJ achieves this with dexterity ? the rendition of the Passsion Play is handled with sincerity and sympathy. His gentle ridicule is reserved for his fellow travellers, the customs of the countries he travels through and above all for his own bewildered behaviour. A gem of a book, slightly wordy in parts, but full of humour.
