I upset Harriet D by being less than wholeheartedly enthusiastic about Tristram Shandy, though I loved A Sentimental Journey. You're on a long and confusing road, good luck!

I'm a little scared at the thought of Tristram S... but I would like to read some Storm Jameson. In fact I *did* read an essay/book the other day by her, called The Georgian Novel and Mr. Robinson. An interesting look at which books were popular in the 1930s.

I have read this book by Storm Jameson and loved her writing. On my TBR pile is 'In the Secon Year', can't wait to get to that one. I also have on my wish list the biography 'Margaret Storm Jameson: A Life' by Jennifer Birkett.

Will be interested to know if reading Tristram Shandy in fifty-page chunks works for you. I really want to read this book and have managed to start it twice without getting even a quarter of the way through. Perhaps I was trying to digest it in over-large lumps. I loved the film "A Cock and Bull Story"(not the film of the book as that's clearly impossible) with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. It was worth watching just for this line: "It [TS] was postmodern before there was anything to be postmodern about."
