Thought by Coleridge to have one of the greatest plots of all literature, TOM JONES (1749) is funny, scandalous and picaresque. It follows the adventures of Tom, from his childhood as a foundling reared by magnanimous Mr Allworthy to hisexploits as a lusty young man temporarily ensnared by the rich and amorous Lady Bellaston. For all his faults, of which a weakness for women is the most evident, and in spite of the machinations of his devious half-brother, Tom is loved by and loves the spirited Sophia. However, a series of comic misunderstandings and misadventures threatens to destroy any chance of happinessthese two might have together. TOM JONES is one of the first and most influential novels in the English language.

Tom Jones isn't a bad guy, but boys just want to have fun. Nearly two and a half centuries after its publication, the adventures of the rambunctious and randy Tom Jones still makes for great reading. I'm not in the habit of using words like bawdy or rollicking, but if you look them up in the dictionary, you should see a picture of this book.From the Publisher:
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
