The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

by Laurence Sterne

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 6, Chapter 39 Summary

  • Susannah knew about Toby falling in love with the Widow Wadman two weeks before it happened—so Tristram can start telling the story then, too.
  • Cut to Mr. and Mrs. Shandy in bed.
  • Mrs. Shandy starts us off. She tells her husband that Toby and Mrs. Wadman are going to be married. Mr. Shandy scoffs, effectively ending the discussion. Sounds like they have a healthy marriage.
