The aptly titled sequel to Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow which is also recorded by Assembled Stories and proved immensely popular.

In this succeeding outburst of whimsy Jerome reflects on a variety of subjects such as 'the art of making up one's mind', 'the care and management of women' and 'the minding of other peoples business'.

A childhood of poverty and being parent less from the age of fourteen ensured that Jerome was always in touch with his own humanity and beneath the humour there is the benevolent wisdom of the author - a shrewd but sympathetic observer of human nature and its folly.

About Assembled Stories: Over the years the national press have reviewed Assembled Stories titles as excellent, remarkable, entrancing, superb, magic for sure, masterly, wonderful, a class act and a splendid example of audio at its best.

    " Very mild fun. Good just before sleep reading! Turn of the 20th cent. newspaper writing with more sentimentality than humor. Deservedly less well known than the 3 Men books. I think there's another collection after this one. Don't think I'll search it out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richa Kholkute | 3/22/2012

    " A humorous book yet philosophical with the truths of life that we ordinary people shy away from such as mollycoddling babies, cats-dogs to inane proportions, value of things we take for granted, the melancholiness of being in the blues because we choose to be so etc. "

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).
