About the Author

Laurence Sterne (1713-1768) was born in Ireland. After graduating from Cambridge University, he took holy orders. His masterpiece, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, made him a celebrity, but ill health necessitated recuperative travel, and A Sentimental Journey grew out of a seven-month trip through France. He died the year it was published.
