Wise, humorous and diverting, Laurence Sterne's celebrated novel A Sentimental Journey joins the Naxos AudioBooks catalogue. Sterne's novel transformed the travelogue genre in the 18th century by making travel writing much more personal and immediate. Writing from a subjective perspective, we experience France and Italy through the eyes of the delightful persona of Yorick. This spirited, mirthful and flirtatious character is an obvious alter-ego for Sterne himself. From losing his passport to being mistaken for a jester to indulging in numerous romantic clinches, Yorick's journey is full of unforgettable incidents and adventures.
