“For in writing what I have set about, I shall confine myself neither to his rules, nor to any man's rules that ever lived”

One of English literature's most curious, complex and comic novels cleverly recreated in the distinctive, anarchic style of cartoonist Martin Rowson, Tristram travels with his faithful companion Pete through the torturous paths of the infinitely digressive world of Sterne's eccentric masterpiece.

The hyperactive structure and comic tone of Sterne's novel lends itself to the graphic form and Rowson successfully adds his own jokes
