About the Book

The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow is made up of 14 individual essays: In the first chapter, "On being idle", the narrator discusses how being idle has been his most distinguishing quality in his works. He claims that a man needs continually be active in order to experience the pleasures of idleness to the fullest. In his dream, the narrator imagines a time when it will be appropriate to stay in bed until noon and read two books. In the second chapter, “On Being In Love”, the writer expresses his thoughts on how men seem to fall in love only once in their lifetime. He compares love with a fire that warms those gathered around it and warns people not to expect too much from love. The writer also advises women to be fair both in appearance and soul. The other chapters of the book include: On Being In The Blues, On Being Hard Up. On Vanity And Vanities, On Getting On In The World, On The Weather, On Cats And Dogs, On Being Shy, On Babies, On Eating And Drinking, On Furnished Apartments and On Dress And Deportment.

About Author

Jerome K. Jerome

Jerome was an English author and comedian who lived from 2 May 1859 to 14 June 1927. His humorous travelogue Three Men in a Boat is his most well-known work (1889). Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, a collection of essays, is among the other works (1886-1927). The fourth child of Jerome Jones and Clapp, an ironmonger and lay preacher, was Jerome Clapp. Due to poor investments made in the local mining business, the family became impoverished. Jerome wanted to enter politics or become a man of letters, but he struggled to make ends meet. He tried his hand at acting in 1877 under the stage name Harold Crichton after being inspired by his older sister Blandina's passion for the theatre. He wedded Georgina Elizabeth Henrietta Stanley Marris in 1888, nine days after she separated from her first husband. In June 1927, Jerome experienced a paralytic stroke and brain hemorrhage. He spent two weeks in the Northampton General Hospital before passing away. At St. Mary's Church in Ewelme, Oxfordshire, Jerome was laid to rest. "For we are laborers with God," his gravestone reads.
