An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day

Four. Against the Day

Chapter 64

Section 6 (942-944)

Paul Nightingale reading Section 64.6

After a send-off party that went on all night, to be remembered for an innocence in which everything was still untouched by cause and effect, they came out into a stormy dawn and walked together arm in arm the slick cobbles of the little streets, under pedestrian bridges and up and down sets of steps in the wet light to their rooms to try and catch a few hours'sleep before departure for the Peninsule.
