Probably not a typo but a blend: "and a young reader might not sympathize with..." + "nor might a young reader sympathize with..."

Pray this is a typo:

  2006 Ian McEwan, in Robin Headlam Wells & Johnjoe McFadden _Human Nature: Fact & Fiction_ (London: Continuum) 41: A reader may not understand from the inside every specific of Herzog's condition...and nor might a young reader sympathize with the remorse of early middle age.
