Passing of the Third Floor Back (1907)
This modern miracle play, with its deep religious meaning, has been seen and enjoyed by many thousand American young people. Those who have seen it and those who have not will equally enjoy its reading. It is, as most of you know, the story of a mysterious stranger who comes to a sordid boarding house and whose unselfish and tactful personality works an almost miraculous change. Many readers believe that the book is intended to portray a modern incarnation of the Christ, but this, of course, we must leave our readers to decide.

Three Men in a Boat (1889)
Based on a holiday boat trip made by the author and his two real-life friends George and Harris. This humorous travelogue includes local history of towns along the Thames, as well as a few serious and sentimental passages, but remains at its core a comic novel.
