Reviews of Tin Man:

  • “It was her first ever act of defiance. Like cutting off an ear. And she’d made it in public” – In the Guardian 
  • “There’s no magical realism to be found, but rather a drilling down through the cold layers of life” – In the Globe and Mail


  • “My storytelling comes from my acting” – In the Independent
  • “The story is barely more than 200 pages, but it achieves more in that short time than most books twice its length” – In Entertainment Weekly

Tin Man

<p class="Bodydin79"><span lang="EN-US">Ellis and Michael are 12 when they become friends. For a while, it is just the two of them, cycling the streets of Oxford, discovering poetry, and dodging the fists of overbearing fathers. And then one day this closest of friendships grows into something more.</span></p>
<p class="Bodydin79"><span lang="EN-US">Fast-forward a decade or so: Ellis is married to Annie, and Michael is nowhere in sight. Which leads to the question: what happened in the years between?</span></p>
<p class="Bodydin79"><span lang="EN-US">With beautiful prose and characters that are so real they jump off the page, <i>Tin Man</i> is a love letter to human kindness and friendship, and to loss and living.</span></p>
