Ebook Details:

Author: Marianne Apostolides
ISBN: No Code
Because fear can transform into confidence, recklessness, the kind of power you cant imagine until youre inside it. And then, once youve felt it, you cant feel alive when its gone. Sophrosyne. You understood this feeling. I know you did, though you never said it. I saw it, instead, on your face when you danced.Sophrosyne is one of only four virtues identified by Socrates – four traits which, if lived deeply, define who we are as human beings. But sophrosyne is a concept our culture has long forgotten. Self-restraint, self-control, modesty, temperance – none of these terms expresses the essence of the word.In this provocative new novel about desire and restraint in a digital age by acclaimed author Marianne Apostolides, 21-year-old Alex is consumed by the elusive problem of sophrosyne for reasons he cannot share with others. While Alexs philosophy professor believes studying it will help shed light on the malaise of our era, Alex hopes it will release him from his darkly disturbing relationship with his mother. As he attempts to uncover his mothers truth, Alex is drawn inside an amorphous, indefinable undercurrent of love and violation. Only through his lover, Meiko, does Alex open into a new understanding of sophrosyne, with all its implications.Reminiscent of Anne Carsons Autobiography of Red, Sophrosyne asks readers to surrender themselves to the books logic and language. Infused with a sensuality balanced by its intellect, Sophrosyne reads like the musics rhythm... soft like wax and supple, warm, pulsing through your veins.

I'm interested.rep added.Thank you
What is an "instant" death anyway? How long is an instant? Is it one second? Ten? The pain of those seconds must have been awful as her heart burst and her lungs collapsed and there was no air and no blood to her brain and only raw panic. What the hell is instant? Nothing is instant. Instant rice takes five minutes, instant pudding an hour. I doubt that an instant of blinding pain feels particularly instantaneous., Read
