Sobre El Autor

Jerome K. Jerome was born in Walsall, Staffordshire, England on May 2, 1859. He grew up in London and had to leave school at the age of 14 because of his parents' death. Afterwards, he worked as a clerk, an actor, a journalist, and a school teacher. In 1885, he published his first book On the Stage mostrar más - and Off: The Brief Career of a Would-Be Actor. This was followed by numerous plays, books, and magazine articles including Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, Three Men in a Boat, and Three Men on the Bummel. He founded the weekly magazine To-Day in 1893 and edited it and a monthly magazine called The Idler until 1898. He also worked as a lecturer. During World War I, he enlisted in the French army as an ambulance driver because he was rejected for active service in his own country. He published his autobiography My Life and Times in 1926. He suffered a paralytic stroke and a cerebral hemorrhage and died on June 14, 1927. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Biografía breve
Jerome Klapka Jerome (2 May 1859 – 14 June 1927) was an English writer and humourist, best known for the comic travelogue Three Men in a Boat (1889).

Other works include the essay collections Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow (1886) and Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow; Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to Three Men in a Boat, and several other novels.

Jerome was born in Caldmore, Walsall, England. He was the fourth child of Marguerite Jones and Jerome Clapp (who later renamed himself Jerome Clapp Jerome), an ironmonger and lay preacher who dabbled in architecture. He had two sisters, Paulina and Blandina, and one brother, Milton, who died at an early age. Jerome was registered as Jerome Clapp Jerome, like his father's amended name, and the Klapka appears to be a later variation (after the exiled Hungarian general György Klapka). The family fell into poverty owing to bad investments in the local mining industry, and debt collectors visited often, an experience that Jerome described vividly in his autobiography My Life and Times (1926).[3]

The young Jerome attended St Marylebone Grammar School. He wished to go into politics or be a man of letters, but the death of his father when Jerome was 13 and of his mother when he was 15 forced him to quit his studies and find work to support himself. He was employed at the London and North Western Railway, initially collecting coal that fell along the railway, and he remained there for four years.



En Londres, a finales del siglo XIX, tres jóvenes amigos deciden realizar una excursión de varios días remontando el curso del Támesis. Este es el pretexto argumental que utiliza Jerome K. Jerome, para revelar, a través de las más divertidas aventuras, los imprevistos y ridículos aspectos de la vida cotidiana.

Tres amigos, George, Harris y el propio Jerome, deciden remontar el Támesis junto con Montmorency, el perro, un foxterrier que no puede faltar en la compañía de tres gentlemen que se precien. Al hilo de sus aventuras, sus bromas y sus jocosas conversaciones y trifulcas, el lector se sumerge en la hermosa campiña inglesa en un relato donde el humor se combina sabiamente con el documental sobre viajes, pues se trata del libro del Támesis por excelencia, de la descripción de su geografía e historia más amena y risueña que pueda encontrarse.… (más)
