The Memory Police takes place on an unnamed island where items — and people — are gradually disappearing. Most residents are oblivious, but those who remember live in fear of the Memory Police, who erase the disappeared from collective memory. When a struggling novelist discovers her editor is in danger, she hides him beneath her floorboards. As fear and loss surround them, they turn to her writing as the last means of preserving the past.

Initially published in 1994, Ogawa’s novel was translated into English in 2019. It was a finalist for the National Book Award, the International Booker Prize and the World Fantasy Award. As for Gladstone, she recently became the first Native American actor to be nominated for an Oscar. She also won the Golden Globe for Best Actress earlier this month.
