The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman
by Laurence Sterne
The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 1, Chapter 9 Summary
- Dedication for sale! But the dedication isn't actually dedicated to anyone, so Tristram asks if anyone wants to buy it.
- If anyone wants it, he can pay 50 guineas to Mr. Dodsley and Tristram will see that his name is inserted into the next edition.
- In the meantime, he dedicates the book to the moon, since it drives people mad and consequently will make people like his book.
