There is no "truth".
We each have our own selected fictions.

But of all its mysteries, to me the greatest one is this:  How could Darley be completely unfazed when he finds out that Justine only wanted to use him;  that Melissa was never turned on by him; and that Clea wanted out of the relationship so bad she started going wacko?  II'd be crushed, but not him!

Then Bal gives his vision in the great redaction. Then an unknown narrator tells the story from Mountolive's point of view -- which is quite different. Finally Clea gets her shot at re-redaction.
