The Chimes, by début author, Anna Smaill, has been chosen by the Independent as one of the top books to look out for in the year to come.

The Chimes, by the New Zealand poet Anna Smail (Sceptre, 12 February), has already picked up praise from Eleanor Catton and Kevin Powers; its title refers to “a world where music has replaced the written word and memories are carried as physical objects”. Simon is an orphaned young man who discovers he has a gift that could change all of this forever … Will it be the novel of 2015? Watch this space.”
