Multiple Narrative

Methods of applying the literary device of multiple narrative are many and varied. They enrich a story when used to dig deeper into a theme and in order to examine a character more closely: that is, both in regard to one character being described by another, as well as in the one who is narrating. I have a character in Following Meltdown whose duplicitous nature is revealed as clearly through his opinions that go unshared with other characters, as their thoughts about him. Here the reader can gradually appreciate her growing suspicions of the motives of this person and his hidden agenda.
