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."

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.
