Sarah Winman is good at titles. The title of her bestselling first novel, When God Was a Rabbit, pinpoints something childlike and surreal, as well as having a meaningful place within the story. Her third and latest book is called Tin Man, which is a reference to a character's job as a panel beater in a car factory. But the words also evoke The Wizard of Oz, and while Ellis - the novel's tin man - does have a heart, it's very broken, and in order to heal he must go on a journey; he must follow the yellow brick road. Winman has a personal link with the car factory in the book. She grew up in Essex but her grandparents lived in east Oxford - a working-class area when she was a child. Her grandfather worked in the Cowley car plant.
Without yb, absolutely nothing would be the same. Readers also enjoyed. A novel of true love and the myriad forms that it comes in…. That I appreciated, in energy. Of doing something for someone that might cost you - in time, actually.
Tin Man is set, primarily, in Oxford. I know Oxford pretty well. Generations of my family were born there. I was not. But throughout my childhood, weekends and holidays were spent with either set of grandparents.
