Book Reviews - Tristram Shandy by Laurence Sterne

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)
