Interview with David Mura
“I started out as a poet. But when I was in Japan for a year on a fellowship, I realized that if I waited until my experiences distilled into poetry, I would miss writing about a lot of what I was experiencing, thinking and feeling. Moreover, outside the pressure to high-power the language into poetry, writing prose allowed me to explore my own psyche in a deeper way and, even more importantly, to explore how my being Japanese American affected not just who I was, but who my parents and my grandparents were.”
