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.

For me, “Tin Man” works better as a sort of universalized fable of love and loss, and not as a story sprung from realistic psychology and fully examined individuals.
