Book Description

In celebration of National Poetry Month comes the publication of THE HOUSE OF SPECIAL PURPOSE. Written almost two decades ago, and unpublished until now, this haunting story in verse from the acclaimed author of TIDELAND and A SLIGHT TRICK OF THE MIND chronicles the last days of the Romanov family during the Russian Revolution of 1918. Once again Mitch Cullin weaves a "suspenseful, elegiac" tale about loss, unrequited affections, and the violent machinations of history. Featuring illustrations by Peter I. Chang, THE HOUSE OF SPECIAL PURPOSE is the first publication from Workshop Lo-Vi Editions.

More About the Author

Born in New Mexico during the "crossfire hurricane" year of 1968 , Mitch Cullin is the author of eight books of fiction, including the novel-in-verse BRANCHES, THE COSMOLOGY OF BING, UNDERSURFACE, and the globe-spanning story collection FROM THE PLACE IN THE VALLEY DEEP IN THE FOREST. To date, his books have been translated into 14 languages.

A SLIGHT TRICK OF THE MIND, his revisionist account of an elderly Sherlock Holmes in retirement, is currently in pre-production with Focus Features. The film adaptation of his novel TIDELAND was directed and co-scripted by former Monty Pythoner Terry Gilliam, produced by Jeremy Thomas, and starred Jeff Bridges, Janet McTeer, and Jennifer Tilly. Besides slowly loosing his hair and writing novels in increasingly smaller and expensive dwellings throughout southwestern America, he continues to collaborate in all things with his long-term partner Peter I. Chang.

With Chang as director/editor, he produced I WANT TO DESTROY AMERICA, a documentary about the street musician Hisao Shinagawa that premiered at the 2006 Atlanta Underground Film Festival and went on to have multiple screenings at the 2006 Santa Fe Film Festival. In 2009, a second Chang-Cullin documentary feature, TOKYO IS DREAMING, had its premier at the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival in the U.K., and features a soundtrack by Calexico's John Convertino.

He continues to write novels in decreasing spurts and increasing sputters, but usually he can be found ambling around his garden in the San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County.
