The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman
by Laurence Sterne
The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 1, Chapter 7 Summary
- Here comes another digression.
- A renowned midwife lived in the village, and here's her story: the only midwife used to live six or seven miles away (that used to be a long way in the eighteenth century), until the parson's wife convinced her husband to pay for a local woman to learn the trade.
- Cut to Tristram's favorite topic: hobby-horses.
