TOKYO IS DREAMING    BY MITCH CULLIN

Created in conjunction with Peter I. Chang’s documentary TOKYO IS DREAMING, this collection of 80 black-and-white stills was photographed by Mitch Cullin between December 2006 to August 2007.  Each image captures the collective yet singular phenomena of public repose in Tokyo, from train seats to park benches, coffee houses to sidewalks, with the subjects either sitting or standing or squatting, all asleep.

Printed glossy in perfect bound softcover, 8.5” x 11”.

With the skillful use of archival footage, collage, and Hisao's own music to address concerns of mortality, memory, and loss, this touching examination of an aging man taking stock of his past is handled deftly as Hisao's life moves from the atomic cityscape of post-World War II Hiroshima to the modern streets of Los Angeles.

—Barnes & Noble Editorial Review


One of the most intimate and interesting documentaries I have seen in a long time.

UNDERSURFACE     BY MITCH CULLIN     Illustrated BY PETER I. CHANG

FROM THE PLACE IN THE VALLEY DEEP IN THE FOREST: STORIES  

BY MITCH CULLIN

2001    PAPERBACK      


After four novels, Cullin rounds up eight short stories. Only three share the West Texas setting of his novels, and they hardly overshadow the others, set in Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Ukraine, and Alaska, respectively. If something of the experimentalist shows in Cullin's novels, his stories are old-fashioned in the best sense, reporting slices of life as the characters experience them in language that is economical yet richly evocative because of its precision.

—Bookist   Ray Olson


 

BRANCHES     BY MITCH CULLIN

2000    HARDCOVER      


The prose is a stage set for Cullin's ventriloquism, which is brilliant and beautiful.

—The New York Times Book Review  Jim Lewis


A quietly chilling short novel in verse.... Cullin is adept at blending the affable and the sinister... (Branches) succeeds admirably.

—Publishers Weekly

2012    E-BOOK


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 Written almost two decades ago, and unpublished until now, this haunting story in verse from the acclaimed author of TIDELAND and A SLIGHT TRICK OF THE MIND chronicles the last days of the Romanov family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.
