Weeds: A Story in Seven Chapters
First published ananymously in 1892, 'Weeds' marked a significant departure from the humour that made Jerome K. Jerome famous. This disturbing story of sexual corruption shows marital fidelity as a perpetual struggle, with Dick Selwyn falling for the attractions of his wife's young cousin, Jessie.
