Three Men In A Boat
Three Men in a Boat is a humorous book, written by the British author Jerome K. Jerome, about a two-week boating expedition on the River Thames. The book was originally supposed to be used as a serious travel guide but that gave way to the timeless humor as Jerome kept writing it. Jerome would later write Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to this classic book.

Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends
George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to
a 'T'. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that
lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of
pineapple chunks â€“ not to mention the devastation left in the wake of
J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency.
About The Author
Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859 â€“ 1927), was born in Walsall and
moved to London with his family when he was still a young boy. His
unusual middle name was from a Hungarian friend of his father. Jerome
left school at fourteen, after his the death of his mother. This was
not unusual in those days in poor families and Jerome's family was
certainly poor. Jerome started work as a railway clerk but had an
artistic nature and soon spent time acting with various theatre
companies â€“ as well as reading in the British Museum library. His stage
experiences led to his first book On the Stage â€“ and Off and to his
determination to make a living as a writer. Three Men in a Boat,
published in 1889, brought him success and worldwide fame. The critics
didn't like Jerome's humour and easy-going style but the public did.
The book was a huge bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic. Sales of
the American edition reached a million copies, even though it was being
sold there illegally! The qualities the critics disliked have now made
the book a timeless classic.
Three Men in a Boat is a fictional, and hugely exaggerated, version
of an actual boat trip up the River Thames that Jerome took with two
friends. After this book's success Jerome worked as a novelist,
playwright and editor. He made lecture tours, especially in the USA and
caused a scandal by publicly criticising the racism in the Southern
States. Three Men in a Boat was his only best-seller. It was so popular
in Germany that clubs were started for people to make their own boating
trips in the style of the trip taken by Jerome and his friends.
I Used To Be A Superwoman
The Chicano Movement is not dead. It lives on, fierce and passionate, in the voice and person of Gloria Velasquez. Challenging our complacency, her resonant cries for justice "refuse to be silent/to be buried in obscurity."
Velasquez has known poverty and discrimination intimately and, like a phoenix from the ashes, she has risen to recognition as an artist, an educator and a leader. But, the poet is as uncompromising with herself as she is with her reader. Refusing to rest on her laurels, her ardent verses are a pledge reiterating her allegiance to la causa and a call to arms demanding that others perpetuate the struggle.
