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! I noted in one of your interviews that you give credit to your father for short sentences. I had the pleasure of working for him in Calgary many years ago - but unfortunately lost touch after I moved to Asia.
You have obviously inherited his talent for words!
Thank you, Lorne! It's lovely to hear from you. I know my dad remembers you very fondly; do you have an e-mail address I could pass on to him? I'm sure he'd love to be in touch.
That would be great, my email is email@example.com
I certainly intend to pick up your book next time I'm back in Canada.
Look forward to reading it.
