I Remember – #268

I remember the first time I saw a – (a dash) represent the beginning of dialogue in a novel.  Revelatory.  Not for what it was, but because it showed me that a writer could do anything, as long as it worked and they were a genius.  It was Ulysses, I think, or perhaps The Recognitions.  I read both around the same time, which sounds like madness now (but I was young).
