Author, playwright, editor
Jerome Klapka Jerome (2 May 1859 – 14 June 1927) was an English writer
and humourist, best known for the comic travelogue Three Men in a Boat (1889).
Other works include the essay collections Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow (1886)
and Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow; Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel
to Three Men in a Boat; and several other novels. Jerome was born in Walsall,
England, and, although he was able to attend grammar school, his family suffered
from poverty at times, as did he as a young man trying to earn a living in various
occupations. In his twenties, he was able to publish some work, and success
followed. He married in 1888, and the honeymoon was spent on a boat on
the Thames; he published Three Men in a Boat soon afterwards. He continued to
write fiction, non-fiction and plays over the next few decades, though never with
the same level of success.
Early life
Jerome was born at Belsize House, 1 Caldmore Road, in Caldmore, Walsall,
England. He was the fourth child of Marguerite Jones and Jerome Clapp (who later
renamed himself Jerome Clapp Jerome), an ironmonger and lay preacher who
dabbled in architecture. He had two sisters, Paulina and Blandina, and one brother,
Milton, who died at an early age. Jerome was registered as Jerome Clapp
Jerome, like his father's amended name, and the Klapka appears to be a later
variation (after the exiled Hungarian general György Klapka). The family fell into
poverty owing to bad investments in the local mining industry, and debt collectors
visited often, an experience that Jerome described vividly in his autobiography My
Life and Times (1926). At the age of two Jerome moved with his parents
to Stourbridge, Worcestershire, then later to East London.
The young Jerome attended St Marylebone Grammar School. He wished to go into
politics or be a man of letters, but the death of his father when Jerome was 13 and
of his mother when he was 15 forced him to quit his studies and find work to
support himself. He was employed at the London and North Western Railway,
initially collecting coal that fell along the railway, and he remained there for four
