Publisher's Summary

"There comes a time in every one's life when he feels he was born to be an actor. Something within him tells him that he is the coming man, and that one day he will electrify the world. Then he burns with a desire to show them how the thing's done, and to draw a salary of three hundred a week...."

This audiobook is a faithful reproduction of one of Jerome K Jerome's first successes, a humorous autobiographical look at his early career in the theatre, published in 1885. The modest success of this book opened the door to further plays and essays, leading on to Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow in the following year.

Jerome K Jerome (2 May 1859 - 14 June 1927) was an English writer and humorist, best known for the humorous travelogue Three Men in a Boat.
