Women who Blow on Knots and Tin Man

Sarah Winman and Ece Temelkuram Chaired by Hannah Beckerman

Oxford Martin School: Seminar Room

£7 - £12.50

Two successful novelists from home and abroad, Sarah Winman and Ece Temelkuran, join to discuss their latest novels.

Tin Man is Winman’s third novel and follows the success of When God was a Rabbit and A Year of Marvellous Ways. It is a story of human kindness and friendship, loss and living. It follows inseparable boys, Ellis and Michael, who grow into men and the impact on them of meeting Annie.

Temelkuran’s second novel Women Who Blow on Knots was a bestseller in her native Turkey and was winner of a Pen Translates award in 2017. It is a meditation on the power women hold today and whether it can make them happy. The story follows three young women and a 70-year-old woman on a voyage and raises questions about politics, religion and the situation of women in the Middle East.

Discussions are chaired by journalist and author of The Dead Wife’s Handbook Hannah Beckerman.
