Publisher Comments:

George, William, and J. agree on one thing. They're overworked and need a rest. A week on "the rolling deep" and#151; they decide and#151; may be just the thing! So off they go with Montmorency, the dog, anticipating the joys of long, lazy days during a glorious Victorian summer. What happens to these bungling bachelors on a two-week rowing excursion up the Thames provides fodder for one of the best-known classics of English humor.

Jerome's timeless comedy follows the trio's misadventures as they struggle with camping equipment and meal preparation, confront rampant hypochondria and unreliable weather, and contend with other disasters and#151; all of which trumpet simple truths that still resonate today.

Katherine Crawford, September 27, 2012 (view all comments by Katherine Crawford)
