THE LIFE AND OPINIONS OF TRISTRAM SHANDY, GENT. (1759-1767) by Laurence Sterne
I first read this work in the 1960s and have not revisited it since then. I have an instinct it may be relevant to our modern age’s Internet-digressiveness, pessimism, melancholy, Ligottian Anti-Natalism &c. &c. as well as to my recent on-line reviews of Finnegans Wake by James Joyce and The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath by H.P. Lovecraft. And more.
And to the intriguingly obsessive use of a semi-colon followed without a space by an em dash. As well as elongated em dashes and other typographical idiosyncrasies.
MY REAL-TIME REVIEW WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE COMMENT STREAM BELOW AS AND WHEN I HAPPEN, IF AT ALL, TO RE-READ THIS BOOK:-
