Haruki Murakami on Oriental Elements

Via Silent Dreams, NYT interviews Haruki Murakami: "But as for the essence of a story, my stories have strong Japanese or Oriental elements. I think the structure of my stories is different from so-called Western stories."

His storytelling, he said, "does not develop logically from A to B to C to D, but I don't intentionally break up or reverse episodes the way postmodernists do. For me, it is a natural development, but it is not logical."

Stream of consciousness.
