about this book

"Sterne's is a world in which anything may happen. We are as close to life as we can be."
—Virginia Woolf

Rich in playful double entendres, digressions, formal oddities, and typographical experiments, Tristram Shandy provoked a literary sensation when it first appeared in a series of installments between 1759 and 1767.

An ingeniously structured novel, Tristram Shandy is a celebration of the art of fiction whose inventiveness anticipates the work of Joyce, Rushdie, and Fuentes in the 20th Century.

This Modern Library Paperback Classic edition of the most protean and playful English novel of the eighteenth century is set from the nine-volume first edition.
