Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 295 pages. Published in 2015. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. "Signed First Edition" red sticker pasted in front. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Anna Smaill's "The Chimes". "A mind-expanding literary debut composed of memory, music, and imagination. A boy stands on the roadside on his way to London, alone in the rain. No memories, beyond what he can hold in his hands at any given moment. No directions, as written words have long since been forbidden. No parents, just a melody that tugs at him, a thread to follow. A song that says if he can just get to the capital, he may find some answers about what happened to them. The world around Simon sings, each movement a pulse of rhythm, each object weaving its own melody, music ringing in every drop of air. Welcome to the world of 'The Chimes'. Here, life is orchestrated by a vast musical instrument that renders people unable to form new memories. The past is a mystery, each new day feels the same as the last. But slowly, Simon is beginning to remember. He emerges from sleep each morning with a prickly feeling and senses that there is something he urgently has to do. In the city, Simon meets Lucien, who has a gift for hearing, some secrets of his own, and a theory about the danger lurking in Simon's past. A world that will captivate, enthrall, and inspire" (Publisher's blurb). Music is the overarching theme of Anna Smaill's debut because she was a professional violinist before she became a novelist and poet. "A remarkable debut. Inventive, beautifully written, and completely absorbing" (Kevin Powers). An absolute "must-have" title for Anna Smaill collectors. This Autographed Copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Anna Smaill. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant writers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 1444794523. Bookseller Inventory #
