This ribald, high-spirited novel, whose author was described by Diderot as 'the Rabelais of the English', provoked literary scandal when it was first published on 1760. With its ingenious structure and its exuberant pretense of being an autobiography, TRISTAM SHANDY fascinates like a verbal game of chess. Milan Kundera has said that it is the eighteenth-century novel he loves best.
