TINKERS by Paul Harding

The Recommend

Bleak and beautiful, the evocative language alone makes this book worthy of a spot in your stocking.

The characters are heartbreaking, and I stopped reading this little book several times just because I couldn’t bear the thought of it ending.

The Recommend

My favourite (well-written) brain candy of 2009!
