PNWJETAA Book Club
Please join PNWJETAA Book Club for our discussion of The Memory Police, the most recently translated novel by Book Club favorite Yoko Ogawa and translated by Stephen Snyder and a Finalist for the 2019 National Book Award for Translated Literature.
 
We look forward to seeing you all on December 15th at 3:00 pm at Fresh Flours on Phinney Ridge to discuss this dystopian thriller.
 
About the book:
A haunting Orwellian novel about the terrors of state surveillance, from the acclaimed author of The Housekeeper and the Professor.
 
On an unnamed island off an unnamed coast, objects are disappearing: first hats, then ribbons, birds, roses—until things become much more serious. Most of the island's inhabitants are oblivious to these changes, while those few imbued with the power to recall the lost objects live in fear of the draconian Memory Police, who are committed to ensuring that what has disappeared remains forgotten.
 
A surreal, provocative fable about the power of memory and the trauma of loss, The Memory Police is a stunning new work from one of the most exciting contemporary authors writing in any language.
