The first three stories are categorized under childhood (hence why they are written in first person)

The next stories come under adolescence and adulthood - and are in third person to show parallel with the thought process already assembled in the opening stories

All of the stories can be read either on their own, or as one large story. I would read it as the latter, because they all connect together and share common themes, such as paralysis and isolation
