Our Book Club

Last month we read The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh.  Prior to that, we read We by Yevgeny Zamyatin

 

To continue along our dystopian path we are reading The Memory Police by Yoko Ogawa.  

 

Shortlisted for the International Booker Prize 2020

An enthralling Orwellian novel about the terrors of state surveillance from one of Japan's greatest writers.

Hat, ribbon, bird rose.

To the people on the island, a disappeared thing no longer has any meaning. It can be burned in the garden, thrown in the river or handed over to the Memory Police. Soon enough, the island forgets it ever existed.

When a young novelist discovers that her editor is in danger of being taken away by the Memory Police, she desperately wants to save him. For some reason, he doesn't forget, and it's becoming increasingly difficult for him to hide his memories. Who knows what will vanish next?
