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 9, Chapter 8 Summary

  • Trim comments on his story: women all love jokes; the trick is to figure out what kind. Toby and Trim march around the house, and Mrs. Shandy, who's been watching them, can't figure out why—and what she says will be recorded in a different chapter.
  • There's no time to argue about it now. Heaven have mercy!
