Synopsis

The Tin Man by Sarah Winman

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.

Reviews

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

'This book is why I read' -- Nina Pottell

'Prima I didn't think a perfect book could exist, I was wrong' -- Simon Savidge

'Heart-breaking and heart-making' -- Ali Land, author of Good Me, Bad Me

'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

'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
