Books By Author Laurence Sterne

Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Sterne Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman, Paperback (May 2015)

Introduces us to a group of memorable characters, variously eccentric, farcical and endearing. This book involves the reader in the labyrinthine creation of a purported autobiography. It anticipates modernism and postmodernism.

Tristram Shandy by Laurence Sterne Tristram Shandy, Paperback (October 2012)

Offers a narrative that interweaves the birth and life of the unfortunate 'hero' Tristram Shandy, the eccentric philosophy of his father Walter, the amours and military obsessions of Uncle Toby, and a host of other characters, including Dr Slop, Corporal Trim and the parson Yorick.

Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy by Laurence Sterne Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy, Paperback (November 2010)

A novel of sentiment, that masquerades as the fragmentary travel journal of Parson Yorick, a whimsical and amorous Englishman abroad. Accompanied through Paris and the provinces by his loyal French valet, Yorick enjoys a variety of sentimental and often comic encounters with a lively range of French characters.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Very fashionable today, especially with those who see him as the father of postmodernism. Sterne is a rogue author, playing with his material, with novelistic conventions and with the reader; he intervenes directly when he feels like it and practises a scurrilous and often surrealistic wit. He is unabashedly comical about anything he chooses, especially if it was in his day, the mid-18th century, forbidden territory - marital sex, for instance. Review by Richard Hoggart, whose books include 'The Uses of Literacy' and 'First and Last Things' (Kirkus UK)
