Item description for The Tin Man by Martin Shannon...

"I have a life," says Joe. "It's just that my life no longer lives with me."

Meet Joe, aged eight, growing up in the 1970s. He's a typical kid who's got it all. Two big brothers, two best pals, holidays by the seaside, a weird feeling inside him when he shares a Waltzer's ride with Catriona... and, at the height of the Cold War, a deep seated fear of The Bomb.

Survival of the imminent holocaust, Joe believes, demands positive action. Begging an old tobacco tin from a neighbor, he sets about filling it with everything he thinks he'll need to make it through the dark days of nuclear winter ahead.

Meet Joe, aged 33, struggling to survive a very different bombshell. He's got Helen, the wife he doesn't live with any more; Georgie, the little daughter he hardly sees; a job he can't stand... and an old tobacco tin lurking in the bottom of his wardrobe sealed against a future unknown.

Cast away from his home, washed up in an unfamiliar city, this is Joe's most extreme survival test yet. He's prepared to prise open the tin but how could anything inside save him from the fall-out from his nuclear family? And what's really best for Georgie?

Tough and tender, The Tin Man is Martin Shannon's debut novel.
