This month the Book Club will be discussing The Chimes from the Man Booker Prize longlist 2015.  It is the debut novel of New Zealand author Anna Smaill.  

The Chimes is set in a reimagined London, in a world where people cannot form new memories, and the written word has been forbidden and destroyed.

In the absence of both memory and writing is music.

In a world where the past is a mystery, each new day feels the same as the last, and before is blasphony, all appears lost. But Simon Wythern, a young man who arrives in London seeking the truth about what really happened to his parents, discovers he has a gift that could change all of this forever.

A stunning literary debut by poet and violinist Anna Smaill, The Chimes is a startlingly original work that combines beautiful inventive prose with incredible imagination.

(Book available on Book Depository, Amazon and Kindle)

The Book Club meets once a month on a Thursday evening (usually the 3rd Thursday of the month) in the home of one of the Book Club members. It is a relaxed and informal gathering, and a great chance for those who enjoy reading to get together over a glass of wine and a light snack to chat about the book.

The Book Club is for BASS and ANZA members and new members are always welcome. If you would like to join the Book Club, please contact Clare or Suzi at anzabass.bookclub@gmail.com
