Review:

"Tristram Shandy is one of the funniest novels in the English language. It's also one of the first great experimental literary works" Independent "A mad, recursive, literary joke" Daily Telegraph "An extraordinary comic tour de force" Guardian "The ultimate novel about writing a novel" Sunday Telegraph "An amazing book, seeming like a modern experimental novel but written in the 18th century by an Anglican clergyman. You can dip in and out of it with constant pleasure." -- Bamber Gasgoigne Daily Express
