We sit down with Mitch Cullin, author of A Slight Trick of the Mind, which tells the story of a 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes' battle with his diminishing mind.
It is 1947, and the long-retired Sherlock Holmes, now 93, lives in a remote Sussex farmhouse with his housekeeper and her young son. He tends to his bees, writes in his journal, and grapples with the diminishing powers of his mind.
