Jerome K. Jerome

Jerome Klapka Jerome (May 2, 1859 - June 14, 1927) was an English writer and humorist, best known for the humorous travelogue Three Men in a Boat






"Some people are under the impression that all that is required to make a good fisherman is the ability to tell lies easily and without blushing; but this is a mistake. Mere bald fabrication is useless; the veriest tyro can manage that. It is in the circumstantial detail, the embellishing touches of probability, the general air of scrupulous -- almost of pedantic -- veracity, that the experienced angler is seen."
