Timeline of Angie Abdou

2019

In a starred review, Booklist claims: “The author brings a novelist’s eye to the story, telling it in first-person present tense; with its sharp characterizations and dialogue in place of autobiographical exposition, the book is a first-rate memoir and a fine example of narrative nonfiction. It’s also a must-read for parents with youngsters who play organized sports.” In The Nordic Sports Forum, Swedish scholar Tobias Stark calls Home Ice “one of the most memorable hockey books ever written.”

2017

Abdou’s fifth book of fiction (In Case I Go, Arsenal Pulp Press) was published in the fall of 2017. Andrew Pyper, author of The Only Child and The Demononlogist, says: “The past reaches up from the soil of In Case I Go to grab hold of its characters and readers alike, refusing to let go. Angie Abdou has written a grown-up work of fantasy, transporting as it is grounded and real.” It was a finalist for the Banff Mountain Book award in the fiction and poetry category. Chatelaine magazine named it one of 2017’s most riveting mysteries.

2014

Aboou’s third novel is Between. Published by Arsenal Pulp Press in August 2014, it explores the lives of two women: Ligaya (a nanny from the Philippines) and Vero (an overextended working mother in North America). The Library Journal selected as a Top Indie pick for Spring 2015. It was named a best of 2014 book by Vancouver Sun, PRISM Magazine, and 49th Shelf.

2011

Abdou’s second novel, The Canterbury Trail, originated as a dissertation project at The University of Calgary. It was released in February 2011 by Brindle and Glass Press (Victoria, BC). It was a finalist for the 2011 Banff Mountain Book Festival Book of the Year Award in the Literature category. The Canterbury Trail also won a 2012 IPPY (Independent Publishing Award, Gold Medal for Canada West).

2009

The Bone Cage was also selected by Kootenay Library Foundation as the feature book for its first annual “One Book, One Kootenay” celebration (launched 8 September 2009).

2007

Abdou’s first novel, The Bone Cage, was published in 2007 by NeWest Press. The novel follows the lives of two Olympic athletes near the end of their careers and explores the connection between body and identity. It describes elite athletics with much detail. A review in VUE Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta) states: “Angie Abdou’s debut novel, The Bone Cage, finds its heart … daring to question what happens to athletes who put everything else on hold for a chance at the Olympics … What lurks in the shadows of elite athletics is what makes Abdou’s follow up to Anything Boys Can Do, a book of short stories, so compelling”. The Bone Cage’ s themes, though, are also relevant outside the world of athletics. In Canadian Literature a reviewer writes: “The Bone Cage extends past sport, exploring the tentative relationship between people and their bodies. Are we simply prisoners of our own “bone cage,” predestined by our body, or can we overcome the limits of our body? Do we even want to overcome our body, or is it simply inseparable from ourselves? The Bone Cage’s questioning of an inherent self-body dichotomy reaches out universally, involving not only sport, but also illness and death. Ultimately, because Abdou does not offer concrete answers for these questions, she shows that though the specific relationship between body and self is individualized, our struggle to reconcile them is universal.” The Bone Cage was a finalist for CBC’s 2011 Canada Reads and was defended by ex-NHL player Georges Laraque. Shortly after the 2011 Canada Reads debates, The Bone Cage was selected as The MacEwan Book of the Year for the 2011–2012 academic year. Past recipients of this honour include Margaret Atwood, Yann Martel, Annabel Lyon, Thomas Wharton, and David Adams Richards.

2006

Abdou’s first collection of fiction, Anything Boys Can Do, was published in 2006 by Thistledown Press. B.C. BookWorld praised the collection as “an extraordinary literary debut.” The book deals with contemporary heterosexual relationships and addresses topics such as infidelity and miscommunication between the sexes. In The Victoria Times Colonist, Brownen Welch claims that “Abdou confirms for us that the female frame is capable of holding within itself a multiplicity of complications and contradictions.” Welch praises Abdou for finding a nonjudgemental language with which to discuss female sexuality.
