Laurence Sterne’s most famous novel is a biting
satire of literary conventions and contemporary
eighteenth-century values. Renowned for its
parody of established narrative techniques,
Tristram Shandy is commonly regarded as the
forerunner of avant-garde fiction. Tristram’s
characteristic digressions on a whole range of
unlikely subjects (including battle strategy and
noses!) are endlessly surprising and make this
one of Britain’s greatest comic achievements.
A cast of strange characters populate this
strangest of novels: gentle Uncle Toby,
sarcastic Walter and of course, the pompous,
garrulous Tristram himself. This edition is read
by Anton Lesser in a tour de force performance.
