Tin Man by Sarah Winman 213 pages

A sparse, beautifully written novel about a different kind of love triangle.  Ellis, Michael and Annie form a threesome.  Ellis and Annie are married, Michael is gay and loves Annie platonically and Michael erotically.  Ellis loves Annie and Michael while Annie understands what is going on and approves wholeheartedly.  The action takes place in Oxford, England, Provence and Venice with an appreciation of Van Gogh thrown into the mix. Most of Tin Man takes place in the 1980’s and 90’s when the AIDS virus was at its peak.

This is a terrific little book that lovingly yet tragically describes different types of love from mother love to true friendship.
