Something good in a day of bad.

One of those rare novels that lives on long after the last page; Sarah Winman’s power to fully inhabit her characters only seems to deepen, and this is a novel that almost stings with truth.

It begins with a painting won in a raffle: fifteen sunflowers, hung on the wall by a woman who believes that men and boys are capable of beautiful things.

And then there are two boys, Ellis and Michael, who are inseparable. And the boys become men, and then Annie walks into their lives, and it changes nothing and everything.

Ellis, Michael and Annie, three points in a poignant triangle of loss and longing, a story of paths taken and the regrets that can haunt forever. Masterclass stuff from the author of When God was a Rabbit.

Sarah Winman grew up in Essex and now lives in London. She attended the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art and went on to act in theatre, film and television.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The writing is powerful and yet understated, whether in Winman's observations about relationships or her evocations of landscapes. With her skilful command of language and deep emotional insight, Winman has produced in the exquisitely crafted Tin Man her best novel to date. - Observer

This is an astoundingly beautiful book. It drips with tenderness. It breaks your heart and warms it all at once

[Tin Man] is a marvel, full of love, longing and loss, huge emotions described in such a beautifully understated way that their impact is all the more powerful - Sunday Express (S Magazine)

An exquisitely crafted tale of love and loss - Guardian

It's exquisite. There are stories you just feel privileged to read. Sarah's writing breaks you and heals you, all in the same moment, and I haven't been so moved, and so in love with a book and its characters in a very long time

Tin Man may be a short novel, at just 195 pages, but it packs an enormous punch - Independent

[Tin Man has] themes of childhood bonds and traumas, and gay love, which she evokes with tender sympathy - The Times

A beautifully written novel - Daily Mail

Heart-wrenching... a short but powerful novel about love and friendship - Woman & Home

This book is why I read - Prima

I didn't think a perfect book could exist, I was wrong

Winman writes with a poetry that makes the impact of Tin Man so much greater than its 200 pages... ephemeral yet powerful... Every fleeting moment is worth repeating, again and again - Stylist

[A] beautiful story about love, loss and longing - Red Magazine

Tin Man sparkles with a timeless beauty that few other authors can invoke... disarmingly lovely and unequivocally heart breaking...Forget every other novel released this month and just read Tin Man, it's the perfect tale of love, loss and life - Culturefly

Heart-breaking and heart-making

Tin Man is Winman's best novel yet. The playful subversiveness still bubbles away but there's a new candour there, an acceptance of needs and flaws that proves deeply touching. This is storytelling as cruelly kind as fate itself

A beautiful, life-giving book that will constantly surprise you - Attitude

'It was beautiful, and occasionally, it hurt,' says Michael - and this exactly describes the wonder of this bruisingly tender book - Psychologies magazine

Emotionally charged - Express.co.uk

Wow what a truly, beautiful, beautiful novel.

Leilah at Doncaster

“ It has rusted and ruined me. It has broken and mended me. With the tears it drew out of me, it has soldered itself to my poor, book-loving heart.”

There’s something about first love, isn’t there? she said. It’s untouchable to those who played no part in it. But it’s the measure of all that follows.

Be still my hammered, malleable heart. What a mighty little... More
