Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome
Possibly the funniest book ever written about the Thames, Three Men in a Boat and Three Men on the Bummel served as the inspiration for Connie Willis' witty time travel/alternate history novel To Say Nothing of the Dog. Fans of Douglas Adams, Caroline Stevermere, and Agatha Christie will giggle themselves anglo reading this book.
Why... I recognize that byline! Congrats, Kiala.
