One of the best-loved classics of all time, Three Men in a Boast is a hilarious account of three friends and their dog on a holiday trip on the Thames in England. Harris, George, Jerome (the narrator), and Monmorency (the fox terrier) decide to take a break from their tedious routine, to restore their "mental equilibrium". And so they take a trip on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford, making certain stops at interesting places, camping out, and inadvertently landing up in comical muddles and misadventures. Originally planned as a travelogue, this book turned into a literary classic, thanks to the narrator's humorous digressions, seguing into the historical backgrounds of some places. It is sprinkled with his own musings as they cross Hampton Court Palace, Monkey Island, Magna Carta Island, Marlow, little villages, and other known landmarks on the way. The three men in the novel are based on real-life characters: Jerome himself, and his two friends, George Wingrave and Carl Hentschel.

"He seems to be everywhere; on television, in book stores and most recently, elbowed his way into the current political morass. But whether he’s “firing” reality contestants, running a billion dollar corporation, picking fights with celebrities or toying with the idea of a presidential bid, Donald Trump’s larger than life persona has been captured for an upcoming Bluewater Productions biography comic. “Political Power: Donald Trump,” scheduled for an October 2011 release, follows the polarizing life and career of the high-profile tycoon, presidential aspirant and media bon vivant. “We’re trying to portray him less as a caricature and more as potential leader of the free world,” said Bluewater president Darren Davis on why Trump’s biography was being published via the “Political Power” brand. “Whether you agree with his political posturing or find him completely self-interested and insincere, he’s pulling up a chair at 2012 Republican presidential nomination table.” Written by freelance journalist Jerome Maida, the 32-page Trump comic biography covers his transition from real-estate magnate who took over his successful father’s company to “The Donald,” the eponymous moniker that fuels tabloids, drives television ratings and relishes the spotlight. ""Trump may be egocentric, he may be a grandstander and a loudmouth, but there’s no denying he has the attention of America,” said Maida. The issue, which will sport a cover from noted artist Joe Phillips, will retail for $3.99. It will be available through comic book shops and several online venues such as Amazon.com and the Barnes and Noble and Borders. The “Political Power” series was launched earlier in 2009 as a companion piece to the successful “Female Force” biography title. The comic allowed Bluewater to delve into the lives and power and legacy of some of the most important and powerful political personalities of the past generation regardless of gender. High-resolution images and interview opportunities are available upon request."
