From the bestselling author of STILL LIFE
*As featured on BBC Radio 4’s ‘A Good Read’*

This is almost a love story. But it’s not as simple as that.

It begins with 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.

‘Packs an enormous punch’ Independent

‘Exquisite. I haven’t been so moved and so in love with a book and its characters for a very long time’
Joanna Cannon

‘This book is why I read’ Nina Pottell, Prima

‘Ephemeral yet powerful… Every fleeting moment is worth repeating, again and again’ Stylist


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
A beautiful, life-giving book that will constantly surprise you
'It was beautiful, and occasionally, it hurt,' says Michael - and this exactly describes the wonder of this bruisingly tender book
Psychologies 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
Heart-wrenching... a short but powerful novel about love and friendship
Woman & Home
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.
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
[A] beautiful story about love, loss and longing
Red Magazine
Tin Man may be a short novel, at just 195 pages, but it packs an enormous punch
[Tin Man has] themes of childhood bonds and traumas, and gay love, which she evokes with tender sympathy
The Times
A beautifully written novel
Daily Mail
Emotionally charged
[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)
An exquisitely crafted tale of love and loss
