Twain's End (Cullen)

Book Reviews
A tender evocation of a vain, complicated man's twilight years and last chance at love.
People


Twain’s End remains a book that is a joy to read. Ms. Cullen is the Bronte of our day.
Huffington Post


Cullen has a knack for weaving in small details to create rich fictional portraits of real-life figures.
Atlanta Magazine


A fascinating book about a complicated writer.
Missourian


(Starred review.) The extraordinary relationship between the popular, complicated author Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain, and his longtime secretary Isabel Lyon is wonderfully reimagined in this absorbing novel.... [A] fascinating interpretation of this early 20th-century literary immortal, distinguished by incisive character portrayals and no-holds-barred scrutiny.
Publishers Weekly


Intelligently drawn…Cullen expertly portrays both Samuel Clemens and Mark Twain… fans of historical fiction and biographies will enjoy.
Library Journal


Cullen portrays the author as a Jekyll-and-Hyde character.... Because Cullen succeeds in portraying Clemens as so unsympathetic, Isabel's devotion becomes a problem for the novel. She comes across as star-struck.... A more nuanced character would have strengthened this sad story of futile, desperate love.
