About the Author:

Tobias Smollett (1721-1771) was a Scottish author, best known for his picaresque novels.

Review:

(in full The Adventures of Roderick Random) Picaresque novel by Tobias Smollett, published in 1748. Modeled after Alain-Rene Lesage's Gil Blas, the novel consists of a series of episodes that give an account of the life and times of the Scottish rogue Roderick Random. At various times rich and then poor, the hero goes to sea, has romantic entanglements, travels the world, discovers his long-lost father, and marries his true love. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
