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

L’île où se déroule cette histoire est depuis toujours soumise à un étrange phénomène les choses et les êtres semblent promis à une sorte d’effacement diaboliuement orchestré uand un matin les oiseaux disparaissent à jamais la jeune narratrice de ce livre ne s’épanche pas sur cet événement dramatiue le souvenir du chant d’un oiseau s’est évanoui tout. The horrors of forgetting At first glance The Memory Police originally published in Japan in 1994 and now available in an excellent English translation looks like a descendant of George Orwell s Set on an unnamed island objects are routinely disappeared both physically and also in the minds of the people One day birds disappear The next day it could be a type of candy Anyone who dares to keep disappeared items is in danger Those who actually remember them are in bigger danger The Memory Police clad in luxurious uniforms keep everyone living in fear People who remember are taken away never to return againWhen a young writer learns her editor is one of the people who remembers she is determined to protect him by hiding him in a secret room in her houseSo yeah it s set up like a typical dystopian novel that deftly illustrates the insidious dehumanizing claw of totalitarianism And Y ko Ogawa does this very well There s a uiet tension that stalks the pages of the novel The fear claustrophobia and struggle feel real But she moves further and I love that she did this past the political and into the larger universal sphere of deathYes death Because the people don t just lose objects when things are disappeared With each lost item people also lose the associated memories Thus their hearts souls and selves suffer losses that cannot be recovered The young woman worries about the day when everything on the island is disappeared When the people are disappeared Her editor a man who still can remember keeps reassuring her Just because things have been disappeared doesn t make them any less real Even if everything disappeared the stories would be there He promises to protect the memoriesBut with patient hypnotic progression the losses continue It becomes less about the woman losing the world around her and about the man losing the woman before his eyesI loved this my first foray into Ogawa s large oeuvre Written in deceptively flat simple prose it offers no easy answers We don t know the wheres whens hows whys This has twinges of The Vegetarian and even The Metamorphosis with weird alienating transformations and much left to the reader to discern It also feels particularly relevant in today s world and here s where it gets political again where our collective memories seem no better than that of a goldfish s swimming in the ether where yesterday s news is swallowed up in today s hypocrisyDevastating and terrifying this forced march towards complete loss In a world where writers lose their voice where is the hope I like to believe it s tiny and it s secret and maybe it s not enough but it s there in a hidden room where the seeds of resistance and memory reside Cock Tales routinely disappeared both physically and also in the minds of the

Comme celui de l’émotion ue provouaient en elle la beauté d’une fleur la délicatesse d’un parfum la mort d’un être cher Après les animaux les roses les photographies les calendriers et les livres les 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. 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

    uiet and understated The Memory Police reflects on what it means to remember the past in the face of state repression The allegorical novel follows an unnamed writer living on a remote island locked in perpetual winter ruled by an authoritarian gang of police who slowly banish residents’ memories of all they’ve ever known from rose gardens to novels Not all the residents forget though and those who don’t are rounde
