I'm talking about the kind of story where the 1st person narrator tells the tale of their younger years from the perspective of their older, wiser self and never lets you forget it. Have you read any books that successfully use that POV? Is anyone here writing one like that? Is it possible to write from that POV without throwing in lines like, "I thought such-and-such was going to happen, but I soon learned different" and "Our life was hard now, but it was about to get much better"? Or is that part and parcel of FPR and the reader has to make the best of it? I think it's a real tension-killer, but maybe that's just my problem for preferring a more immersive point of view.
