The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 4, Chapter 24

By Laurence Sterne

Book 4, Chapter 24

  • Yes, there's a chapter missing—TS tore it out, because the book is better without it. It was going to be a description of Mr. Shandy, Toby, Yorick, Trim, and Obadiah all heading off down the road, but the chapter was so good that it made every other chapter look bad by comparison. You'll never know what you're missing.
