Jerome, Jerome K.: Told After Supper (Illustrated). v1. 26 May 2012
By the author of “Three Men in a Boat,” “Three Men on the Bummel,” “Diary of a Pilgrimage,” “Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow,” “Stage-Land,” etc.
A collection of thoroughly enjoyable, thoroughly tongue-in-cheek ghost stories, told on Christmas Eve (because everyone knows Christmas Eve is THE night for ghosts to strut their stuff). The narrator keeps a straight face throughout; the reader, on the other hand, assuredly does not. Many of the illustrations hold further delights - close examination of the decorative details reveals humorous little surprises. A fun, fast read, with chuckles on every page.
An excerpt to tempt you:
Nearly 100 illustrations and decorations. All images except the illustrated capitals are centered; there isn't enough text to pad out the illustrations if they are wrapped. The no-text-wrap version uses plain large caps.
