9780099519157: The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (Vintage Classics)

Sterne's utterly original novel—the meandering, maddening "autobiography" of one of literature's oldest comic characters, with an introduction by Tom McCarthy Doomed to become the "sport of fortune" by an interruption at the crucial moment of conception, Tristram Shandy’s life lurches from one mishap to another: his nose crushed by the doctor's forceps during birth, christened with the wrong name, an unfortunate incident involving a slamming sash window. Groundbreaking, subversive, and still controversial, this novel has inspired, enraged, and perplexed writers and readers for centuries. Discover the antiautobiography of the hilarious and impossibly long-winded Tristram Shandy.

From the Back Cover:

The comic masterpiece Tristram Shandy is often regarded as a progenitor of the twentieth century novel. Within the resolutely tangled strands of this narrative is the life, from conception, of a gentleman cursed at birth with the name Tristram. Though everything occurs between parlor and garden, Tristram's excitable father, bewildered mother, and Uncle Toby provide ample opportunity for the digressions and madcap events that structure this seminal novel.

From the Inside Flap:

Introduction by Peter Conrad
