Slice of Life

Slice of life is a storytelling technique that depicts scenes from the everyday life of a character. These may not contribute to the plot but rather help to develop the character. It is common for a slice of life to be comical or surreal. Some authors make heavy use of slice of life whereby the entire plot evolves within scenes from everyday life. For example, Haruki Murakami in known for his use of everyday scenes to develop surreal plots that envelop completely regular characters.
