Tinkers by Paul Harding (Marilynne Robinson: Foreword)

“Special edition of Paul Harding’s Pulitzer Prize-winning debut novel―featuring a new foreword by Marilynne Robinson and book club extras inside”.

In this special tenth anniversary edition, Marilynne Robinson presents the exquisite novel Tinkers, featuring the poignant tale of an aging man on the brink of death. As time collapses into memories, he embarks on a profound journey into his past, reuniting with his father and reliving the joys and hardships of his impoverished upbringing in New England. Tinkers is a heart-wrenching yet life-affirming work, an elegiac reflection on love, loss, and the resplendent beauty of nature.

The story behind this bestselling debut novel, which achieved the rare distinction of being independently published and winning the Pulitzer Prize, rivals the elegance of the prose itself. Inspired by his family’s history, Paul Harding began crafting Tinkers when his rock band disbanded. After facing numerous rejections from major publishers, Harding was on the verge of shelving the manuscript. However, Bellevue Literary Press stepped in and offered a contract, leading to a remarkable turn of events. Even before its publication, the novel garnered attention and captivated independent booksellers nationwide. Readers and critics alike fell in love with Tinkers, culminating in its Pulitzer Prize win. The New York Times hailed its extraordinary success as “the most remarkable Cinderella story in recent literary memory.”

The unfolding of this narrative continues as readers across the country continue to discover and embrace this modern classic. With over half a million copies sold, Tinkers reaffirms that great literature thrives and resonates deeply with a passionate audience.
