Nowadays Jerome K. Jerome is mainly known for his comic masterpiece Three Men in a Boat. But he was very much more than a one-book wonder, writing plays, essays, short stories, sketches, and other novels. The Other Jerome K Jerome is, in effect, a Jerome reader, providing a carefully chosen selection from his other works demonstrative of the variety and brilliance of his writing. Including excepts from On the Stage—and Off, The Passing of the Third Floor Back, and Diary of a Pilgrimage, among others, and with an introduction by Martin Green, this is an ideal companion for fans of Three Men in a Boat who want to find out more about its author’s other works.
