Three Men in a Boat (AmazonClassics Edition) Publisher's Summary
In 1889, satirist Jerome K. Jerome fully intended to write a serious travel guide when he and his two best friends embarked on a boating trip up the river Thames to Oxford. But his musings on landmarks and local history were soon hijacked by his own digressive, waggish voice. And so, what began as a peaceful and edifying two-week exploration soon floated upriver into farce - aided, quite naturally, by a portly ration of cheese, some very bad weather, and a dog named Montmorency.
Noted for its classic set pieces, Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) is still uproariously fresh more than a century after it was first published and continues to influence writers and comedians to this day.
Revised edition: Previously published as Three Men in a Boat, this edition of Three Men in a Boat (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
