"Three Men in a Boat in 1889, was a comic travelogue was first serialized in Home Chimes, and then published as a book in the same year. Jerome had taken a very similar trip along the Thames for his honeymoon in 1888, and his experiences provided him the subject material for the novel.

Critics savaged Three Men in a Boat, describing it as vulgar for its attempts to appeal to the lower classes. However, it was extremely popular, and its success ensured Jerome and his family financial stability for life. It sold 202,000 copies in its first year, and more than one million copies in the 20 years after its publication. Its popularity extended around the world – it was translated into many languages, has been adapted into film versions, and for decades was considered compulsory reading in all Russian schools (Nicholson). To this day, it has never been out of print, and fans of the book continue to follow Jerome’s itinerary along the Thames."
