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 7, Chapter 9 Summary

  • Montreuil is beautiful on the map, but less beautiful on the ground. The most beautiful thing in it is the innkeeper's daughter. (We know he likes her because he calls her a slut. Tristram's got a funny way of expressing affection.) He would describe her, but he knows that we'd much rather hear about the parish church.
