Like Scenes From A Ryu Murakami Novel

I am toying about using the above as the title for one of the sections of Rush Hour.

Do you know Ryu Murakami? Excellent Japanese novelist, writer, and author of Audition (made into a film) and Popular Hits of the Showa Era (flimed as Karaoke Terror).

I have the feeling that Rush Hour is a bit like writing a Ryu Murakami novel, labyrinthine, looking beneath the soul of life and the economics of the daily grind. Stories of the street, the grimy realities of what is, rather than romanticised notions of what could be, if that makes sense. Exciting, powerful and quirky. Cultish, stylish with a twist of the macabre...I am talking, of course, about Ryu Murakami's novels and not Rush Hour...though, you never know...

As well as recommending Ryu Murakami (one of my favourite writers)
I want to also recommend a couple of great fellow blogs : http://businessovertapas.blogspot.co.uk/ http://aleishachrome.wordpress.com/
