The last reading stopped at: “bloody mongrel” (Cyclops U12.497) If you wish to read Chandra Holm's explanatory notes about the passage just read, check her earlier entries for this blog, e.g. the post for 14 July 2015.
Chandra hosted the blog when she was herself following Fritz Senn's Tuesday readings of Ulysses and has gathered a wealth of elucidating material and commentaries. You can find her blog entries to the right of this text in the bar under Blog Archive.
