Why this shouldn't be a passive sentence?

0

Hello, I found this piece in a wikipedia article here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Green_Mile_%28novel%29

Under the "Plot" section we can see the sentence bellow:

A first-person narrative told by Paul Edgecombe, the novel switches between Paul as an old man in the Georgia Pines nursing home sharing his story with fellow resident Elaine Connelly in 1996, and his time in 1932 as the block supervisor of the Cold Mountain Penitentiary death row, nicknamed "The Green Mile" for the color of the floor's linoleum.

In the start of the sentence can we say it in this way:

The first person narrative was told by paul edgecombe,.....

Please tell me what kinda of sentece is this?

Thanks
