The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

by Laurence Sterne

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 6, Chapter 24 Summary

  • Tom, Trim's Inquisitioned brother, had given him a red-and-fur cap and two Turkish tobacco-pipes (hookahs, in other words). The cap was one of Trim's prized possessions, and he liked to stake it.
  • In this case, he said he'd give away his cap if he couldn't figure out how to please Toby.
  • The next day was a major turning point in the battle that Toby was acting out.
  • He got dressed up for it, putting on a special wig and even shaving for the occasion. This all took so long that it was 10:00 by the time he got out the door.
