The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 7, Chapter 29 Summary

  • Here, Tristram interrupts himself to address Jenny, who whispers into his ear. He laments that Fortune has sent him lots of little accidents rather than really big ones, because the really big ones are easier to handle.
