David Jourdan - Th' Life an' Opinions of Tristram Shan'y, Juntleman, as enny fool kin plainly see. Voloom I. Westphalie Verlag 6.5 x 9" 84 pages 2006 1st printing Edition of 300 The book is the dialectization of the unabridged text of Laurence Sterne's "The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman", Volume I (first published 1759) into redneck vernacular. The translation originates in early runs of Al Capp's comic strip Li'l Abner (1934-1977). Capp's characters speak in odd dialects. However, they do not talk like real hillbillies but as Capp feels a hillbilly would probably talk if he lived near Dogpatch all his life.
