"A lot of nonsense is written about Laurence Sterne's "The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman" -- and that's just as well. It would be depressing in the extreme if this triumphant tangling up of the threads of reason with the strands of linear narrative were to admit of any effective unravelling; which is as much to say, that were you to find yourself picking apart a lucid, non-discursive exposition of the novel - its themes, its techniques, its plot -- you would know that you had finally gone mad." -- Will Self --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Sterne's utterly original novel - the meandering, maddening 'autobiography' of one of literature's oldest comic characters. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description
