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

'An exquisitely crafted tale of love and loss.' - The Guardian 

'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.' - The Observer

'Tin Man may be a short novel, at just 195 pages, but it packs an enormous punch.' -  The Idependent

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

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

'[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)

'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.' - Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep

'A beautifully written novel.' - The Daily Mail

“A glorious, heartfelt read”

“And I wonder what the sound of a heart breaking might be. And I think it might be quiet, unperceptively so, and not dramatic at all. Like the sound of an exhausted swallow falling gently to earth.”
