In The Postmodern Condition, Lyotard identifies narrative as a distinct type of knowledge created and reshaped by individuals as nodal points. The novel All the Things I've Been explores this paradigm in Postmodern thought by following a narrator disconnected from ostensible reality as he attempts to create a new explanatory narrative to excuse his own misdeeds. Living in a subterranean hole, he draws on elements of the literature he hoards about him to construct a plot that will account for a past he is unwilling or unable to confront.
