    The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy is a novel by Laurence Sterne written in nine volumes from 1759 to 1767. The novel is humorous and satirical with numerous allusions to other literary works, ostensibly telling the story of Tristram's life story. However, most of the story is taken up with digressions and discussions, various humorous explanations of Tristram's anti-heroic nature and the clashes between sarcastic Walter and kind Uncle Toby.
