Product description

Review

"Atmospheric, intensely-imagined strangeness." ""Daily Mail"""

"The novel is hypnotic, melancholic and requires concentration, but it builds to an incredibly tense and emotionally satisfying climax that rewards all the effort." ""Elle"""

""The Chimes" is a remarkable debut. It's inventive, beautifully written, and completely absorbing. I highly recommend it."
"Kevin Powers, author of "The Yellow Birds"
""

"To call "The Chimes" striking is, I dare say, to underplay what might be the most distinctive debut of the decade."
"Tor.com""

"Creates an artistic and cerebral vision of a people without past or future . . . Smaill's melodious prose lures the reader like a pied piper. With literary trappings, but a solidly speculative heart, "The Chimes "is a cantata of pure delight."
"Shelf Awareness
""

"Atmospheric, intensely-imagined strangeness." Daily Mail"

"something strikingly new" Lit Hub"

"A highly original dystopian masterpiece, an intricately imagined, exquisitely invoked world in which music instills order and ravages individuality . . . Smaill is a poet and a classically trained violinist, and both these skills shine in this lyrical novel steeped in the language of music . . . clearly marking her as an exciting new writer to watch."
--Geraldine Brooks, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of March


"something strikingly new"--Lit Hub

"Smaill's clever use of musical terms in her characters' speech adds to the immersive quality of the work, and her melodious prose lures the reader like a pied piper. With literary trappings but a solidly speculative heart, The Chimes is a cantata of pure delight."--Jaclyn Fulwood, Shelf Awareness (Starred Review)
