This month sees the release of Julian Barnes’ latest novel The Noise of Time. The novel tells the tale of Shostakovich in Russia between 1936 and 1960, and his struggle under the Stalinist regime. If you or someone you know has enjoyed The Noise of Time, why not give The Conductor by Sarah Quigley a try?

Set in 1941 during the siege of Leningrad, The Conductor is the story of the 'Leningrad Symphony' told from the point of view of Shostakovich and the conductor Karl Eliasberg. In the midst of the famine and hardship, this music was a powerful symbol of inner strength and resistance.

I would love nothing more than to add the words “How to” to the beginning of this article’s title. But the truth is that I have absolutely no idea. How can I make someone choose my crime novel instead of, say, Denise Mina’s latest or Tony Parsons? Will my book ever get placed on one of the nice spots at those crime tables in the book stores? Or perhaps I should count myself lucky to be right at the back, on the top shelf, where you’ll need a stool just to reach ‘Ahnhem’ (if only my grandfather had the sense to be called Laarson or Mankeel.) I expect there’s a possibility that my book won’t make its way to the stores at all.
