Description

Harry Hartog Book Club
On the first Tuesday of each month, Harry Hartog invites you to a night of spirited (occasionally combative) discussion centering around each month's book club pick. Complimentary drinks and refreshments will be supplied (to offset literary hostilities).
This month's pick is 'Tin Man' by Sarah Winman, chosen by staff member Sally.
"This book is beautiful; nostalgic but never cliché. Winman's writing is incredibly powerful, it's transient, it's full of sensitivity and empathy, walking you gently by the hand through your greatest griefs and sweetest memories. It will remind you of the people we have loved the most and why it hurts all the more when we have lost them.
Winman centers Tin Man loosely around a painted copy of Van Gogh's bursting sunflowers: a constant anchor among the turmoil which reminds us of life's simplest joys; friendships, sunshine, art and a whisky... or two.
I'd like to recommend popping some headphones in and listening to David Bowie 'Heroes' as you read page 85 and as needed for respite thereafter... and be sure to have tissues close by.
It's a book that might break you, but it might also help heal you. This is a special book, my favourite read of 2017."
- Review by Sally
I haven't cried. But sometimes I feel as if my veins are leaking, as if my body is overwhelmed, as if I'm drowning from the inside."
- Sarah Winman, Tin Man
