Following the great success of Three Men in a Boat, a friend of mine said, Well now, why don't you write a sensible book? I should like to see you make people think.

Do you believe it can be done then? I asked.

Well, try, he replied.

Diary of a Pilgrimage is a story bubbling with Jerome's wit and whimsy interspersed with intervals of calm reflection. Written in 1891, it is the tale of a journey to see the Passion Play at Oberammergau. Many of his light hearted remarks prove to be acute observations of contemporary life, many of which hold true to this day. This is a wonderful piece of Jerome literature that fully deserves its place in the sun.

    " I love Jerome K. Jerome. If you can't afford to go on vacation for yourself this is the next best thing. It was also a lot of fun to read prior to my own vacation. He goes through a lot of the same chaos on a train that I went through on a bus, but he did it with wit? "

    " I really enjoyed this. I think I preferred it to Three Men in a Boat which sometimes seems to try to hard to be funny. It might be because I was in holiday in Austria when I was reading it on my way to the Oberammergau passion play (which was the aim of the Pilgrimage in the book). "

About the Author
Author Jerome K. Jerome

Jerome K. Jerome (1859–1927), English humorist, novelist, and playwright, was born in Staffordshire and brought up in London. After a series of jobs including clerk, schoolmaster, actor, and journalist, he became joint editor of the Idler in 1892 and launched his own twopenny weekly, To-Day. His magnificently ridiculous Three Men in a Boat (1889) established itself as a humorous classic of the whimsical. His other books include Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow (1886); Three Men on the Bummel (1900); Paul Kelver (1902); the morality play The Passing of the Third Floor Back (1907); and his autobiography, My Life and Times (1926).
