Short Story For You
One of my favorite authors HARUKI MURAKAMI released a short story entitled A SHINAGAWA MONKEY
I love how most of his stuff has so many great metaphors and analogies. He uses the human senses to really draw you out into a meadow where you are forced to figure out where you are standing in the story. He makes you figure out what the story means to you by painting the characters with such a vivid color that as you read you are then made to come to your own conclusions about who they really are. It's like getting feed nothing but tomatoes and then you no longer taste the tomato but the acidity, the texture, and the earth of it. You find this in a lot of Far East literature. They really NEED to get their point across to you, even if that point is simplicity.
