YOKO OGAWA

The Memory Police

$16.00 $

Finalist for the International Booker Prize and the National Book Award.

A haunting Orwellian novel about the terrors of state surveillance.

On an unnamed island, objects are disappearing: first hats, then ribbons, birds, roses. . . . Most of the inhabitants are oblivious to these changes, while those few able to recall the lost objects live in fear of the draconian Memory Police, who are committed to ensuring that what has disappeared remains forgotten. When a young writer discovers that her editor is in danger, she concocts a plan to hide him beneath her floorboards, and together they cling to her writing as the last way of preserving the past. Powerful and provocative, ‘The Memory Police’ is a stunning novel about the trauma of loss.

Yoko Ogawa has won every major Japanese literary award.
