Just finished reading A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin. The main character is an aging Sherlock Holmes which made me think I would be reading another faux Holmes detective story a la The Seven Percent Solution. Instead, I just finished one of the most alluring and tender stories of an elderly man, winding his way through the shrinking world of age and loss. This is probably the most graceful book I’ve ever read.
Thanks brni for recommending it.
