Wolfe goes in for unreliable narrators and unreliable narration, which I like, I'm afraid. An ultimate example is probably Soldier in the Mist and soldier of Arete: the hero has no memory, but that doesn't stop him being the nearrator!
Haha, that puts me in mind of an excellent author, K J Parker. He has a series out called
The Scavenger Trilogy
which is all about a dude who one days wakes up in the aftermath of a battle, and realises two thing:
First, he's the only one alive. Second, he doesn't remember anything about who he is, or where he's from.
It's a top, top
series, from a first rate author
. If you're into that sort of thing, you should read it. It's in first person, and Parker's style of writing is very dry and sarcastic, just my kind of humour
. I only laughed as many times while I was reading the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy...
