While it is beyond doubt that Jerome K. Jerome is most well known for his comic masterpiece Three Men in a Boat, the range of his other literary achievements is staggering.
Journalist, playwright and author, a wealth of his writing has remained just beyond the public gaze.
Diary of a Pilgrimage is one such work. The pilgrimage of the title is a journey to see the famous Passion Play at Oberammergau, which has been performed every ten years since 1634, the middle of the Thirty Years War.
Diary is a typically witty account of this journey, part travelogue and part social commentary.
It is also a work which has long deserved its place in the sun, outside of the benevolent shade of Jerome's more famous writing.
