Title of the Week

The Memory Police
by Yoko Ogawa

"This Japanese drama about memory and loss, inspired by the author’s interest in Anne Frank’s diary, is a slow burn. It’s a quiet apocalypse with only a few truly tense moments. However, it builds to one of the most unforgettable and striking endings that left me with an uncomfortable, eerie feeling."
