It was a joy to read David Mulholland's latest novel, DUEL . While the account of the events leading up to and including the duel are fascinating, what really appealed to me was the way in which the writer of the report (aka Mulholland???) fought to remember the details surrounding the event some 50 years later, and the charming way in which he expressed those thoughts. As he relates his remembrances of events, his thoughts twist and turn and sometimes go off at interesting tangents.
The novel affords us some interesting and compelling insights into rural life in the 1800's, and includes some insights into relationships between young folk at the time that are sure to evoke memories in those of us living many years later.
This is a very good read, and I highly recommend it.
