#TBR 2019 list: Tin Man
- Author: S. Winman
- Title: Tin Man
- Trivia: 2017 shortlist Costa book Awards
- Trivia 2019 longlist Dublin Literary Award
- This book is about loneliness.
- I found the book to be an attempt to
- paint loneliness with landscapes….
- (sunflowers fill the frame,
- swallows soar with heat on their wings (pg 210)
- and not describe
- the deep feeling of loneliness
- …like a mould growing slowly around you.
- Yes there are cries of the heart that evoke your emotions
- …but all in all the book was too lyrical, too sugar-spin sweet
- and just seemed to scratch the surface of the ache of loss.
