The point of view in this novel is first person. It shifts back and forth between Artie and Vladek. Vladek largely tells the story in flashback. Artie deals with the present. Vladek’s narrative gives us context into the war and his character: we find out why Vladek is the way he is. Artie begins to understand his father better through his stories.
