The life and opinions of Tristram Shandy, gentleman by Laurence Sterne( Book )

331 editions published between 1760 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 4,900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 worng 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
A sentimental journey through France and Italy by Laurence Sterne( Book )

1,133 editions published between 1760 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 3,974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known for his novel Tristram Shandy, author Laurence Sterne drew upon his experiences in the 1760s, when he travelled extensively through France and Italy, to create this fictional travelogue. --From publisher's description
The life & opinions of Tristram Shandy, gentleman by Laurence Sterne( Book )

412 editions published between 1760 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 2,643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At once endlessly facetious and highly serious, Sterne's great comic novel contains some of the best-known and best-loved characters in English literature--including Uncle Toby, Corporal Trim, Parson Yorick, and Dr. Slop--and boasts one of the most innovative and whimsical narrative styles in all literature. This revised edition of Sterne's extraordinary novel retains the text based on the first editions of the original nine volumes (with Sterne's later changes), adds two illustrations by William Hogarth, and expands and updates the introduction, bibliography, and notes, to make this the most critically up-to-date edition available. The text of the novel preserves, as far as possible, the appearance of Sterne's idiosyncratic typography and features such as black pages, marbled pages, blank pages, missing chapters and other devices. The introduction sheds light on the novel's innovations and influence and provides a biographical account of the author. Comprehensive notes identify the profusion of references and reveal previously overlooked sources. - Publisher

A sentimental journey through France and Italy by Laurence Sterne( Book )

364 editions published between 1769 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The quintessential novel of sentiment, A Sentimental Journey masquerades as the fragmentary travel journal of Parson Yorick, a whimsical and amorous Englishman abroad. Accompanied through Paris and the provinces by his loyal French valet, Yorick enjoys a variety of sentimental and often comic encounters with a lively range of French characters. The novel is also punctuated by passages of self-conscious reflection on questions of personal and national identity, slavery and freedom, poverty and inequality

Beginning with an account of his own conception this parson-turned-writer uses the story of his birth and early years as a vehicle for many bizarre and hilarious digressions.
