about

Socrates sits chained to a wall in a small prison cell. In a month he will die of hemlock poisoning. At night, by the light of a tiny oil lamp, on rolls of paper smuggled in by loyal friends, he tells his three sons the story of his life.

He writes vividly about the people and events that shaped him as a person. The mother who encouraged his questions. Teachers who promoted the Greek ideals of courage and glory. Bloody battles. Lifelong friends lost and enemies made. Being proclaimed the world's wisest man.

Fearing his sons may follow in his ill-fated path, Socrates honestly reveals his thoughts and feelings, his successes and his failures, and his search for the answer to the ultimate question-how can I be happy?

R. L. Prendergast is the author of the novel, The Impact of a Single Event, which became a bestseller in Canada. His second novel, Dinner with Lisa, won an Independent Publisher’s award for best fiction in Western Canada. The Confessions of Socrates is the author’s third book.
