The author, as previously discussed, is shaping a story out of the events of his own life. As such, he is uniquely qualified to tell this story—no one else has the lived, considered perspective on his life that he does. Although a more objective narrator might be able to provide a clearer, perhaps even more accurate version of the facts of his life, it is the author's interpretation of those facts, and of the feelings associated with them, that makes this narrative a story. Otherwise, it would be a diary.
