But this is not the beginning of our story. If a story must have a beginning then this one begins in a tree...Long before tomorrow when today had not quite become yesterday and somewhere in-between lunch and dinner...two monkeys were sat in a tree... And that would have been that except...except there is an awlful lot more.The stork, for reasons the tree monkeys explain, went on holiday but he flew South instead of North and bumped into some jazz-loving badgers; while he was away, the tree monkeys set off to discover the Honey Elephant's honey yard. Then there are the Sisters of the Sacred Brethren, a group of flightless condors, headed toward the Lost Forest on a pilgrimage....and, completely separately, the Rajastan Dodo is now extinct... But to be fair, no one probably noticed...Eventually they all come together in a chaotic tale of...well...you'll need to read the story to discover just what happens...or doesn't or should have... But as the stork says, “it's a metaphor, isn't it...a fossilised snake, a giant inner tube...no...erm...hominy grits?..oh, a pole..?”“It is the one and the many at the same time...” replied Sister Dor of the Sisters of the Sacred Brethren.The sun began to tire and slip down to the horizon, trying as best it could to cast butterfly shadows on the sand dunes until...in the cooling evening air, it sneezed, lost its balance and fell below the horizon plunging everything into darkness...Oh and don't forget, it is probably a bad idea to feed the badgers honey...And remember, the Honey Elephant is a rare and special thing and the subject of unwritten history...probably just a myth then...

Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy, Abridged

Tristram Shandy, widely regarded as one of the great works of English literature, is also one of the most difficult to read.This edition simplifies and shortens the book to two-thirds of its original length, making it accessible to the general reader while retaining its wit and style.Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy, first published in 9 volumes between 1759 and 1767, is considered one of the great works of English literature.

Not Man Enough

The protagonist’s advocacy against mass accusation on him being ‘not man enough’. He also contests the parallel label of ‘not woman enough’. The jury is already out as he puts up his witty advocacy against the pop cultural benchmarks over gender appropriates and massive peer pressure on men and women alike for being ‘something enough’. It is for readers to preside on the judgment. He needs you!The protagonist’s advocacy against mass accusation on him being ‘not man enough’. He also contests the parallel label of ‘not woman enough’. The jury is already out as he puts up his witty advocacy against the pop cultural benchmarks over gender appropriates and massive peer pressure on men and women alike for being ‘something enough’. It is for readers to preside on the judgment. He needs you!It is not only about being not a man enough. This predicament is similar for women too. This label of not man enough also extends to women as being not women enough. Rather, women in contemporary culture have to struggle with this label far more than men. In modern culture, there are so many stupid and populist benchmarking of a women’s desirable persona and imagery that it is really tough for a woman to feel comfort and wellness with her natural body and mind, let alone with a choice, which does not conform to populist imagery.The protagonist not only attempts a joint advocacy against the label of being ‘not man enough’ as well as being ‘not women enough; he also has a silly perspective on what ‘enough’ benchmark the populist cultures must have for larger wellness of gender mutuality. He surely needs your vote. Do bail him out!
