The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 9, Chapter 13 Summary

  • When Tristram's got writer's block, he shaves and get dressed. Shaving is the easiest way to get the words flowing, because the body and mind are linked. So if you want to know whether Tristram has written a clean or a dirty book, the best thing to do is look at his laundry bill.
