About the Author
Irish-born Laurence Sterne was an eighteenth century English author and Anglican clergyman. Though he is perhaps best known as a novelist, Sterne also wrote memoirs, articles on local politics, and a large number of sermons for which he was quite well known during his lifetime. Sterne s works include The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman, A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy, and the satire A Political Romance (also known as The History of a Good Warm Watch-Coat). Sterne died in 1768 at the age of 54. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Whilst we only get to see a snapshot of one of Tristram Shandy's best characters, A Sentimental Journey gives us more of the inimitable parson Yorick, a magnanimous, hilarious, bumbling, rather-more-lustful-than-a-parson-should-be Englishman abroad. Yorick, along with Tristram is another of Sterne's autobiographical incarnations, (his sermons, which are actually Sterne's own, are collected elsewhere) giving a fascinating insight into one of the most idiosyncratic, hilarious and genuinely brilliant writers in the English language.
