American writers aren’t the only ones guilty of this trope. Murakami has been known to include girls that change the male character’s life in suit of this trope. This is evident in books such as Norwegian Wood and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage (remember how the protagonist idealized the girls in his life). Create an argument supporting Murakami’s use of this trope and/or analyze the role women play in the lives of male protagonists in his books.
