The Memory Police by Yōko Ogawa

This is a meditative (at times, too meditative) look at the faultiness of memory, the surveillance state, and trying to hold on to a sense of normalcy amid abnormal times. It also answers a question for me that I've had in the back of my mind since ...more

A mix of Ottessa Moshfegh and Kari Russell, this collection of short stories is a little bit creepy and a little bit weird. I enjoyed it, though.

Emily Hahn
“There had been a time, until 1422, when a number of both Gaelic and Anglo-Irish students attended Oxford and Cambridge in England. But fellow students had complained that Irish living together in large numbers sooner or later got noisy and violent and there was no handling them. Accordingly, the universities imposed a quota system on Irishman, and decreed that those admitted must be scattered around among non-compatriots: exclusively Irish halls of residence were banned.”
Emily Hahn, Fractured Emerald: Ireland
