The life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence  Sterne PDF novel 

Tristram Shandy

‘The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy’ is a fictional memoir of sorts, but the novel is written in a manner to subvert the formal conventions of the novel (a proto-post-modern genre), and along the way, assert the role of the author as a Maximus Prime Writer, or in other words, someone in complete control of your television set. It is all in good fun, a wonderful satire that aims for lowbrow comedy by using every single aspect of the highbrow educated culture of 1760.

To mention some examples of the author’s games with the reader, the Dedication is placed after several chapters of the book, chapters are skipped or missing, the narration of the action is interrupted by sudden ‘ejaculations’ of listening characters or the author who is reminded of another story, which may or may not is finished in the telling, while the original plot thread may be mislaid for awhile.
