A Slight Trick of the Mind

Author: Mitch Cullin

A major motion picture directed by Bill Condon and starred by Ian McKellen. Launched in July 2015.

«(A) touching picture of a once-great man now in old age, his powers declining, his beliefs -his world- crumbling. For all his genius, he realizes, the one thing he has never understood is love.» The New York Times

«This is a lovely, tenderhearted book, full of reserve, good manners, elegance of feeling. It’s what a novel should be. You don’t read it to be improved but for the plain joy of seeing what the language can do in the hands of an affectionate, very accomplished writer.»  The Washington Post

«Few non-canonical Holmes stories…are as original and surprising as Mitch Cullin’s A Slight Trick of the MindSunday Times
