Tristram Shandy by L. Sterne (Sept.) + Francois Rabelais (August)

Two first volumes of Tristram Shandy by Lawrence Sterne for the September discussion (more for enjoyment) since this book was another winner of the latest poll. Influenced by Rabelais and Cervantes, this work was praised by many writers including Voltair and Goethe.

August challenge - Gargantua and Pantagruel by F. Rabelais. Since we do not meet in August and since Rabelais had a major influence on Lawrence Sterne, we thought it might be exciting to compare two works.

Cost $1 - to cover part of the expenses of maintaining this site.

    a thoughtful discussion about a seminal work. So many people who'd signed up never appeared, though.

    I will be there, and I may be the only person to have already read Gargantua and Pantagruel.
