Doomed to become the 'sport of fortune' by an interruption at the crucial moment of conception, Tristram Shandy's life lurches from one mishap to another: his nose crushed by the doctor's forceps during birth, christened with the wrong name, an unfortunate incident involving a slamming sash window. Though everything occurs between parlor and garden, Tristram's excitable father, bewildered mother, and Uncle Toby provide ample opportunity for the digressions and madcap events that structure this seminal novel

"Tristram Shandy est un ouvrage excentrique, déroutant, riche et tendre. C'est un roman qui se moque du genre romanesque. C'est un faux ouvrage d'érudition qui ridiculise les cuistres. C'est un traité d'art militaire où l'on fait combattre des soldats de plomb, un livre d'obstétrique où le médecin arrive en retard, une histoire d'amour inachevée, un tableau de la société campagnarde anglaise et des humeurs d'une étrange famille. Tristram Shandy, qui embrasse tous les sujets, qui est écrit sur tous les tons, est un livre de tous les temps, chef-d'Oeuvre de fantaisie, d'humour et de sensibilité
