We Are All Duds ----
We are all duds. This is not an admonishment, but an invitation to the Dudley in us all, finding fellowship with the forsaken and forlorn. Dudley is both a man of his time and anachronistic, inhabiting multiple voices and drifting through memories, dreams, and moments of staggering lucidity. He shifts and wriggles and yet remains Dudley throughout—observing and recollecting, struggling to find his way in a world that has slipped from his reach. Marginalized and needy, Dudley confronts his past and present without expectation of redemption. He is vile and honest and brave; above all, he is just a dud.
