APOSTOLIDES, Marianne: Sophrosyne
APOSTOLIDES, Marianne. Sophrosyne. ill. Noriko Maeda. Toronto: BookThug, 2014. Revised and Updated Edition. 202x127mm. Trade Paperback. New. 167pp. 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 Alex's 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 mother's 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 Carson's Autobiography of Red, Sophrosyne asks readers to surrender themselves to the book's logic and language. Infused with a sensuality balanced by its intellect, Sophrosyne reads like "the music's rhythm... soft like wax and supple, warm," pulsing through your veins.

APOSTOLIDES, Marianne: Swim: A Novel
APOSTOLIDES, Marianne. Swim: A Novel. Toronto: BookThug, 2009. Limited Edition. 8vo. Perfect bound into Wrappers. New. 96pp. Attuned to a body in motion, Swim pulls the reader beneath the logic of prose, into the eroticism of language itself. The arcing rhythm of a body breathing &ndash a woman marking her birth as she swims in a pool &ndash sustains the unique and hypnotic language that becomes the medium through which this story moves. Swim entwines the present with those past actions and consequences that have brought Kat to the Greek mountain village where her father was born. She swims laps while her fourteen-year-old daughter reclines on a chaise lounge, poolside, reading a book. Without ever leaving the pool we enter discrete scenes with Katís parents, daughter, husband and lover. On entering each point in this history, Kat reveals an undertow of sound, rhythm and words in their rippling meanings. Each new lap moves Kat closer to her impending decision: whether she will leave her husband. But the deeper tension within this innovative novel derives from the writing itself -- its vital urgency that extends the possibilities of narrative beyond the fixed and into the fluid.

ARNOLD, Elizabeth: Civilization
Flood Editions, 2006. First Edition. 8vo. Perfect bound into Wrappers. New. 79pp. These poems move from politics and history to an intimate gesture, from ancient fragments and architectural facades to a father's face. The layers Arnold excavates in the process are both archaeological and psychological; at the limits of civilization we find both silence and archaic force, "the white-noise granulated light, a sand-storm whiteout."

ARTAUD, Antonin: The Monk
Creation Books, 2003. First Edition in English, translated from the French by John Phillips. 8vo. 310pp. Trade paperback. New. Artaud's evil simulacrum of The Monk is th only work of sustained fiction by the infamous literary provocateur. Taking Matthew Gregory Lewis's gothic novel of 1794 as the raw material for an astonishing exploration of the far edges of death, sexuality, terror, language and the body, discarding entire chapters, recreating others and stamping his own distinctive identity on the work in his avowed aim to accentuate the story's violence and atrocity to the maximal degere. In Artaud's The Monk, sexual obsession is irrepressibly crushed together with murder, cruelty and blasphemy. The result is a searing narrative of massacred nuns, raped virgins and satanic retribution which will leave the reader simultaneously ensnared, gratified and abused.
