“In Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, Murakami strictly alternates between two narratives,” says Rabb. “I took this alternation as a conceptual idea for his website…. There are two basic templates on the site: One is a light-colored beach scene, the other a dark, quasi-urban scene. As you click through the site, the pages alternate between the two, regardless of what the content of the page is. Depending on the order in which you get to it, the same page could appear either dark or light.”
