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.
Congratulations! Well deserved. It's delighting to discover a local writer gaining national prominence. I imagine you must be pulsating with excitment.
Thanks, Daniel! You're very kind.
I read it on the flight from Vancouver to Tampa. LOVED IT!
Thanks, Millar - glad you got a hold of a copy! You're very kind.
Congratulations!!! I'm betting on you for the top prize.
You may or may not remember, but our paths crossed about a decade ago when I worked in the books section of the National Post and you reviewed for us.
Wishing you all the best.
Carrie, thank you! I do of course remember you, and it's great to hear from you again. Hope all is well with you and yours -
