The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

by Laurence Sterne

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 4, Chapter 31 Summary

  • Now, Tristram says, I'm the heir to the Shandy family, and my life and opinions can begin for real. All the previous books and chapters have been clearing the ground. The worst part is that he hasn't even gotten to the best part. That would be the adventures of Toby in love and war.
  • Now, Tristram wants to know how you're feeling. Seriously, how's it going? He has a terrible headache. He's sure that his readers are well, because they've been experiencing some awesome Shandyisms.
