Published just months before his death in 1768, A Sentimental Journey is Sterne's lightly fictionalised account of his own European travels. And being Sterne, it is more about digressions, misunderstandings, and risqué jokes than the places he visits. Narrated by the (apparently) innocent Parson Yorick, who appeared in Sterne's other masterpiece, Tristram Shandy, it is full of anecdote and incident, and is far more about the people than the landscapes on the road from Calais. Despite the title, any sentimentality is offset by the elegance of the writing, the engaging companionship of Yorick himself, and the constant, playful surprises.
