Tristram Shandy Online
Every last person should read at least the first two books of Tristram Shandy; it takes great moral fibre to actually force yourself through it, but it’s worth every inch of force.
In quick summary it’s an ‘outrageous’ tour de force written by Tristram about his life. He isn’t born until halfway through the third book (and these are proper big books, not themodern crap that the olde folke would’ve called ‘chapters.’ His chapters are about the length of modern author’s books…) He spends a lot of his time lamenting the fact that he’s not going to get very in this autobiography, as it’s taken him four years to write the first day of his life. Just read the beginning if you’re feeling lazy 😉
