An exhilarating book, both brilliant and profound. Annabel Lyon’s spare, fluid, utterly convincing prose pulls us headlong into Aristotle’s original mind. Only Lyon’s great-hearted intelligence could have imagined and achieved the brave ambition of this book. Vital, ferocious and true, The Golden Mean is an oracular vision of the past made present.
--Marina Endicott, author of Good to a Fault
In Lyon’s clever hands, more than two thousand years of difference are made to disappear and Aristotle feels as real and accessible as the man next door. With this powerful, readable act of the imagination, Annabel Lyon proves that she can go anywhere it pleases her to go.
A stunning book!
Pure poetry. A vivid description of Macedonia, its beauty, its military prowess and its innate roughness.
A picture of a time. A portrait of Aristotle and his relationship with King Philip of Macedon and the young Alexander the Great.
Thanks, Julian! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
This is such good news - wishing you & your book a long and happy life together.
Congratulations Annabel! I'm looking forward to reading your book, I'm getting a copy today.
We got some good pictures from the shoot. You'll see one in the upcoming VR and I can send you a selection if you're interested.
I saw the interview today on BCTV. I am dying to buy the book.
@Janet - Where are you getting your copy? I looked online at chapters and it's a 2-3 week order.
Thanks, Janet - I'm dying to see the picture! I'll be in touch -
Millar, thank you - I do hope you'll enjoy the novel. Not sure about the on-line, but Chapters on Robson had copies in-store a couple of days ago.
Saw your photo in the Globe and Mail for the Giller longlist. Congratulations!
I look forward to reading your book. I'll see if I can buy it this weekend (I'm living in Toronto now, so maybe I'll find it?). Besides, I'm a fan of Aristotle and the golden mean...
Dhavide, it's great to hear from you! Hope all is well with you and the family. Hope you'll like the book.
@miller—I found a copy at
Pulp Fiction on Main Street.
2422 Main Street
They can order in a copy. It takes one to two days.
When I checked at Chapters on line they had copies in the store at the Broadway and Granville branch and at Robson and Howe.
Thank you, janbax! People's Co-op Bookstore on the Drive should have a few signed copies too (leftover from yesterday at WOTS).
