Chapter Four: a discussion of Murakami’s work as a literary journalist, chiefly in his writings on the 1995 Aum Shinrikyō incident. This chapter also explores how individual narratives connected with that incident come into conflict with public “collective” narratives disseminated through the mass media, and how that conflict is exposed through Murakami’s nonfictional writing on the subject.

Keywords:   Murakami Haruki, contemporary Japanese literature, philosophy of language, ontology, mythology, psychology, metaphysics, global literature, literary journalism, narrative
