The narrator intertwines scenes from s Latvia, from late s Texas, and from current day Texas to create a larger story of fate and legacy. While writing about the current day, however, the narrator primarily describes the thoughts, actions and activities of Stanley, the protagonist. Many statements are made which require the reader to make his or her own inferences about the subject matter.
