You get The Memory Artists. Jeffrey Moore's second novel plays strictly upon the idea of remembering and forgetting. The book itself is introduced as evidence on behalf of Dr. Emile Vorta, a neuroscientist that has worked with all five individuals suffering from different memory afflictions. He introduces the reader to a motley cast of characters, all of whom suffer from some sort of memory related issue. It is uncovered throughout the book that Dr. Vorta may have attempted some unorthodox studies, such as artificially inducing Norval with synesthesia and Stella with Alzheimer's.

There were two grey Samsonite suitcases on the bed, and she was now sitting on a third, trying to get it to close. A red horeshoe began to pulsate inside Noel’s brain: the PET scan image of his mother’s shrinking hippocampus. Let me help you with that bag. They can be a real bugger sometimes. One step forward, two steps back. Why is nothing bloody working? They don’t wor. ike they used to.

Winner of the Canadian Authors Association Award for Best Novel Noel Burun has synesthesia and hypermnesia: he sees words in vibrant explosions of colors and shapes, which collide and commingle to form a memory so bitingly perfect that he can remember everything, from the 1001 stories of The Arabian Nights to the color of his bib as a toddler.

Memory can be as much a curse as it is a blessing. Representing a quantum leap forward from his workmanlike Prisoner in a Red-Rose Chain (2002), Canadian author Moore here turns in a lovely Quebecois opus about people trapped by their memories, or lack thereof. Noel Burun is a hypermnesiac synesthete, meaning he sees words in colors. He also has a near-photographic memory for practically everything he’s experienced since birth; his recall would impress Proust.

In the tradition of Jonathan Safran Foer and Jonathan Lethem, Jeffrey Moore effortlessly juggles different voices and narrative styles to get at the very heart of what it means to remember and to forget. Noel Burun is a hypermnesiac synaesthete: his memory is unrelentingly exact, and he sees spoken words as vibrant explosions of colour, a sensation that often leaves him befuddled and bewildered. Adding to his frustration is his mother's slow descent into the quicksand of Alzheimer's.
