The Vintage International reads this way as well, so I assume yours is
correct. (Btw, are the page numbers the same for all editions?) Were you

thinking that the comma before "where" was a misprint? It does seem odd,
as
if he were suddenly responding to a different stimulus, as we have
with "and damn that music."

Dear Carolyn,

Putnam's 1st edition (1st impression 1962), Weidenfeld & Nicolson 1st
ed.
(3rd impression December 1962)and The Library of America all have
exactly
the same text. But I take your double dashes "- -" to be a substitute
for
the Shandyean longish dash. I have to admit that I don't see the
"misprint."
