I am writing about narration style and have been looking for a proper translation of layered in this case to no success.

The account of the main protagonist's history is layered, first by her own interpretation and then by that of the narrator.

Merci d'avance!

    I'm not sure a single satisfactory word is out there. I think something like this might work instead: "a plusieurs niveaux d'interprétation, d'abord la sienne et après celle du narrateur".

    Or maybe "est raconté de plusieurs points de vue: d'abord du sien, ensuite de celui du narrateur".

    Something in that vein, maybe?
