I still think that the premise of this book is really thought provoking as an extension and perhaps even conclusion to Orwell s 1984 but the plot didn t pull it together for me I left with a lot of uestions and frustrations continually asking why or how We had a great discussion about it on the podcast though Empire State Building: The Making of a Landmark humains semblent touchés une partie de leur corps va les abandonnerEn ces lieux demeurent pourtant de singuliers personnages Habités de souvenirs en proie à la.

Nostalgie ces êtres sont en danger Traués par les chasseurs de mémoires ils font l’objet de rafles terrifiantesUn magnifiue roman angoissant kafkaïen Une subtile métaphore des régimes totalitaires à travers lauelle Yoko Ogawa explore les ravages de la peur et ceux de l’insidieux phénomène d’effacement des images des souvenirs ui peut conduire à accepter le pi. The Memory Police is one of my top ten books for 2019Originally published in 1994 and released in translation only this year and with a decent marketing budget as evidenced by the stunning cover and many interviews and reviews it is compelling Like all of Ogawa s works it is also timeless It may strike us as a novel of the moment because state surveillance is its backdrop But Ogawa s stories are about how people respond to their circumstances to limitations What motivates them What confuses them What compels them to make this or that choice Her language is calm unexcited She describes unnerving events with simplicity Her words linger but don t shout Ogawa has written 20 books and won multiple awards but Memory Police is only her fifth to be published in English All have been translated by Stephen Snyder a professor of Japanese studies at Middlebury College If you tend to avoid literature in translation get over it for this one please Snyder s translation is amazing The Memory Police is Japanese not American so our protagonist isn t the heroic sort determined to defy the system She is a writer living on an island that none are able to depart Objects and concepts occasionally disappear sometimes physically sometimes the community s collective understanding of them evaporates such that they remain in existence but meaningless to all Ogawa offers no explanation for either the mechanism or the rules of disappearing Disappearing is useful primarily for exploring the role of memory in how we become us as individuals and as communities and whether if those memories are dismantled we change and to what extent Our protagonist is calm She goes along to get along As a child she lost her mother to the memory police She s in her early 20s now and a novelist But now other objects are disappearing music roses stories Occasionally people are taken away by the Memory Police and never seen again Because she fears for good reason that her editor R is at risk of being disappeared in the South American manner familiar to all in the 1970s she finds a way to hide him with the assistance of a friend in a room hidden between the floors of her home The suggestion of Anne Frank an inspiration Ogawa has flagged in multiple interviews acts as a bit of distraction for the reader R is the defender of community and individual memory of the importance of writing and reading as a means of preserving the past and understanding who one is Ogawa is ever the mistress of misdirection As the pages turned I worried unceasingly about R and the dog Meanwhile in the moment I missed the forestAt one point our writer protagonist is working on a story about a typist whose instructor interacts with her in ways that are at first dismaying then baffling and finally cruel Her story is presented in segments without any framing One of the irresistible and confounding mysteries of The Memory Police is the significance of the story within a story I promise you you ll spend a lot of time contemplating how the two stories relate and perhaps arriving at a handful of possibilities If you bring an ounce of humility to The Memory Police you ll remain a little uncomfortable and a tad uncertain about the interpretation you choose I love that Ogawa leaves us with uestions than answers In a profile of Ogawa published August 12 2019 the NYTimes included the following uote Ogawa considers herself an eavesdropper on her characters I just peeked into their world and took notes from what they were doing she said Her eavesdropping is unparalleled Enough to make a fan of a champion dystopian avoider like meIf you re worried about the dog view spoileryou don t need to He s healthy and happy to the last page hide spoiler
