MAKING THINGS THREE AND EASY

SHORT NOVEL ABOUT TWO MEN IN LOVE — AND THE WOMAN THEY BOTH CARE FOR — IS A LIFE-AFFIRMING TALE

BOOKS

BOOK OF THE MONTH

TIN MAN

Sarah Winman/Tinder Press

This beguiling short novel from the author of the international bestseller When God Was a Rabbit begins with a painting of 15 sunflowers being won in a raffle by a woman who believes that men and boys are capable of beautiful things. Then we meet two boys, Ellis and Michael, who couldn’t be closer; teenagers who find love and tenderness in each other’s arms. They become men, before meeting Annie — an event that changes nothing and everything. Set in Oxford, and spanning the three decades from the Seventies until the Nineties, Tin Man is the sensitively told story of three people who love and care for each other, as remembered by Ellis, a metal-worker and the tin man of the title. Ellis recalls the day Michael arrived in his world, the bond he formed with his empathetic mother, and later with his wife Annie, and the affection that sustains them as they grow older. But life is not that simple, and things, inevitably, change. A novel about kindness and hope, love and loss, told with a disarming simplicity and honesty, Sarah Winman writes with an evocative precision and a captivating turn of phrase. A beautiful, life-giving book that will constantly surprise you. 27 July
