The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 7, Chapter 1 Summary

  • Tristram recalls that he said he'd write two books a year, and that he'd go for forty years—as long as he kept his health. And he's been pretty cheerful about it, too, even when he almost died.
  • Death came for him at exactly the moment he was in the middle of a story (a really dirty one, too. Don't think about it). He fled to France to regain his health.
