Yoko Ogawa: Shortlisted for the International Booker Prize 2020

The shortlist for the prestigious International Booker Prize 2020 have just been announced and we are happy to see  “The Memory Police” by Japanese author Yoko Ogawa among them.

“The Memory Police is a masterpiece: a deep pool that can be experienced as fable or allegory, warning and illumination. It is a novel that makes us see differently, opening up its ideas in inconspicuous ways, knowing that all moments of understanding and grace are fleeting. It is political and human, it makes no promises. It is a rare work of patient and courageous vision.” – The Guardian

In our territories rights of this work have been sold to Tusquets/Spanish-World and Estaçao Liberdade/Brasil.
