Literary: The Bone Cage


You are invited to join author Angie Abdou at our store (1391 Commercial Drive) August 29th 7:30 pm, to launch her new novel, The Bone Cage.


Advance Praise for: The Bone Cage


“Through Sadie and Digger, Abdou captures the heroic quests of these hopeful Olympians in all their gritty pain and glory. Sequences describing Digger’s wrestling matches and Sadie’s grueling sets of lengths are vivid, intense, and authentic. . . . The Bone Cage is well paced and readable, memorable for its fresh perspective on the lives of athletes and the obstacles they must overcome.”

Quill and Quire

“Original, visceral, emotionally alive, Angie Abdou's first novel is illuminated by her many clever takes on the divided ways our culture looks at bodies . . . this engaging first novel also brilliantly catches not only the perils and trials but also the disciplined shimmer of the life of a champion swimmer.”

Elisabeth Harvor, author of All Times Have Been Modern

New in stock this week: Contrary Notions: A Micahel Parenti Reader

“Radical in the true sense of the word, [Parenti] digs at the roots which... sustain our public consciousness.”— Los Angeles Times Book Review

Internationally acclaimed, award-winning author Michael Parent is one of America’s most astute and engaging political analysts. Parenti’s work has enlightened and enlivened readers for many years, covering a wide range of subjects.

Here is a rich selection of his most lucid and penetrating writings on real history, political life, empire, wealth, class power, technology, culture, ideology, media, environment, sex, and ethnicity. Also included are a few choice selections drawn from his own life experiences and political awakening. Parenti goes where few political observers dare to tread. Time and again he takes the extra step beyond the parameters of permissible opinion, and time and again he succeeds in carrying the reader with him.

The selections herein, that are reprinted from previously published works, have been revised and updated. Other offerings appear here for the very first time.

Michael Parenti is a critically acclaimed author and an extraordinary public speaker. He received his Ph.D. in political science from Yale University and has taught at a number of colleges and universities, in the United States and abroad. He is the author of twenty books, including Superpariotism , The Assassination of Julius Caesar, Inventing Reality, and Democracy for the Few.
