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.
What a pleasure it was to hear you read this evening at the Okanagan library. Your writing is spell binding. Your presence is genuine and generous. "Do something that cannot be undone each day," is a message that I will take with me to deal with the usual bog of daily life. Thank you,
Thanks for these kind words, Cherie! The pleasure really was all mine. All the best to you and yours, and thanks for coming out last night -
A little off-topic, but... I came from your reading in charlottetown a short while ago, and wanted to say that you read well, and in a lively way, with the voices of the characters differentiated nicely. Your intelligence came through both _The Golden Mean_ and the answers to audience questions.
I mentioned my book to you. If you do read it, you'll likely recognize some remarks about, allusions to, and quotations from, classical writers. Hopefully it'll add to your enjoyment.
Again, thanks for the reading. I think everyone there enjoyed it. It was nice talking with you after.
Thanks for these kind words, Jeff! It was lovely to meet you last night, and I'll look forward to reading your book.
I read your wonderful profile on Edith Iglauer in Geist recently, and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I've read quite a few of her Geist offerings too and always enjoy them.I understand that your profile on Iglauer is one in a series of 'British Columbians who ought to be better known' and I hoped, perhaps, the wonderful photographer Uli Stelzer might be one of them.
All the best,
Dear Mrs Lyon,
I am your reader from Brazil. I really liked your book.
So, I been write a critique for it.
