Books On The Go

Nov 3, 2019

Anna and Annie discuss the fallout from the Booker Prize and the winner of the Not the Booker, Last Supper by Lara Williams.

Our book of the week is The Memory Police by Yoko Ogawa, translated by Stephen Snyder. Ogawa has won every major Japanese literary prize; this novel is a 2019 National Book Award finalist. Set on an unnamed island, objects are disappearing and people no longer remember them.  A young woman novelist hides her editor under the floorboards.  A restful dystopia, if there is such a thing? Annie loved this.

Next week, we are interviewing The Museum of Modern Love author Heather Rose about her new novel, Bruny.
