Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Bantock's bewitching trilogy, begun with Griffin & Sabine and Sabine's Notebook , ends with this characteristically curious installment. Once again, Bantock employs his singular brand of visual sorcery to create postcards, stamps and letters that ostensibly travel between two artists--Griffin, a Londoner who has just completed an around-the-world journey, and South Pacific islander Sabine, who insists she awaited his return in London, yet left no sign of her presence. As Griffin wonders whether he and his elusive soul mate occupy "parallel universes," Sabine worries that her telepathic connection to him grows "murky." Desperate to resolve their situation, they seek neutral ground on which to meet. Meanwhile, other questions arise about the nature of their bond. Griffin mentions the death of a woman he loved and receives two threatening postcards from a scientist investigating the "liaison." Bantock's imagery maintains its exoticism, with tantalizing allusions to his previous books, Jungian psychology, mythical ceremonies and the Tarot. If the fictional events here seem more melodramatic and slightly less profound than in earlier volumes, it's because readers know (almost) what to expect. This fantastical and peerless tale--whose conclusion was not revealed to PW --is a must-have for Bantock's collectors. 300,000 first printing.

I can't get Griffin & Sabine out of my mind. "The Orlando Sentinel"The somewhat conspiratorial thrill of reading other people's mail... becomes so infectious, it's impossible to stop until the book's end. "The San Francisco Chronicle" --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fanciful but lacks text Aug. 31 2010
Nicely laid our graphically, but an excuse by the author to display his artistry with Pop-Ups. it lacks text and is more of a Logbook than an actual novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Characters Will Grab You and Not Let Go Nov. 26 2003
By S. Wade
"The Golden Mean" is the best of the three books, in my humble opinion. The ending is satisfying and still somehow mysterious. Bantock doesn't spoon-feed his readers information, he seems to want to encourage them to make up their own minds about the nature of Griffin and Sabine's relationship, What It All Means, etc. Altogether, it's a wonderful, nerve-wracking book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh... Dec 21 2001
By C
In some ways I felt like this series wrapped up too neatly, and in other ways I felt like it should have been more wrapped up. Oh well. Still a magnificent work of art combined with a compellings and intruiging story.
