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 Marvellous 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 Marvellous Ways with a love letter to human kindness and friendship, loss and living.

Reviewed by Olivia at Angus & Robertson Bookworld:

In Sarah Winman’s new novel Tin Man, the idea that men and boys are capable of beautiful things prevails throughout. After reading this book, I am left without doubt that this is absolutely true.

With Tin Man, Sarah Winman proves that great beauty can exist at the intersection of grief and love. She does this through her portrayal of Ellis and Michael, two lovingly rendered characters who meet as young boys. Ellis and Michael share a fragile intimacy that must withstand the intervention of life and other love as they grow up together and then drift in and out of each other’s lives. Winman has split the novel into two parts that are each told from different perspectives. One captures Ellis as a lonely older man grieving the loss of his beloved wife Annie, while the other captures Michael as a despondent young man caught in the wake of Ellis and Annie’s love. By splitting their stories, Winman slowly reveals a series of intimate moments in the course of a life that was shared by two men in pursuit of beautiful things, and it’s a treasure to read.

Deeply moving without being heavy, this is a rare and tender novel that will quietly break your heart and mold it back together all in one.
