Product description

Review

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

Synopsis

The first novel by Sterne, "Tristram Shandy" illuminates the incongruous behaviour of the individuals who live at Shandy Hall and their neighbours. A novel that has no beginning, middle or end, it is made up of a mass of inconsequential reminiscences, musings, and often hilarious digressions.
