Product Description

The unforgettable and achingly tender new novel from Sarah Winman, author of the international bestseller When God Was A Rabbit and the Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller A Year of Marvelous Ways.

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.

Tin Man sees Sarah Winman follow the acclaimed success of When God Was A Rabbit and A Year of Marvelous Ways with a love letter to human kindness and friendship, loss and living.

Review by Ben Hunter

This is a tender and moving novel that richly rewards the reader with language and honesty. I was won over from the outset, and everyone I've talked to about this book is incapable of faulting it. Moving elegantly from life to life, the economic prose inhabits the realms of kindness and loss that define us. The protagonist, Ellis, becomes completely tangible for the reader. I feel like I've sat down and had long conversations with him.

Please read Tin Man. Emotions will be stirred, sentences will be quoted, and this little yellow book will become a part of your life.

Emotionally charged * Express.co.uk * 'It was beautiful, and occasionally, it hurt,' says Michael - and this exactly describes the wonder of this bruisingly tender book * Psychologies magazine * A beautiful, life-giving book that will constantly surprise you * Attitude * 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 -- Patrick Gale Heart-breaking and heart-making -- Ali Land, author of GOOD ME, BAD ME 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 * [A] beautiful story about love, loss and longing * Red Magazine * 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 * I didn't think a perfect book could exist, I was wrong -- Simon Savidge This book is why I read -- Nina Pottell * Prima * Heart-wrenching... a short but powerful novel about love and friendship * Woman & Home * A beautifully written novel * Daily Mail * [Tin Man has] themes of childhood bonds and traumas, and gay love, which she evokes with tender sympathy * The Times * Tin Man may be a short novel, at just 195 pages, but it packs an enormous punch * Independent * 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 An exquisitely crafted tale of love and loss * Guardian * [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) * This is an astoundingly beautiful book. It drips with tenderness. It breaks your heart and warms it all at once -- Matt Haig 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 *
