A sweeping and enchanting new novel from the widely beloved award winning author Elizabeth McCracken about three generations of an unconventional New England family who own and operate a candlepin bowling alleyFrom the day she is discovered unconscious in a New England cemetery at the turn of the twentieth century nothing but a bowling ball a candlepin and fifteen pounds of gold on her person Bertha Truitt is an enigma to everyone in Salford Massachusetts She has no past to speak of or at least none she is willing to eveal and he. R maybe the droppings of a bloody nose Everyone who knows Willoughby knows the boy is mentally unable to stop using his pudgy fingers to excavate crusty booger lodes from his nasal mineshaftsThe story in Bowlaway is odd serpentine sad and funny populated with many compelling characters McCracken s writing is a marvel She uses words like Paula Deen uses a deep fryer With just 26 letters McCracken constructs sentences that will wobble your ulnar nerve one moment
And Then The Next Completely 
then the next completely your heart like an industrial car crusher To say she can write is like saying the Fennec fox has sensitive hearing On the other hand Willoughby s writing while informative is uite possibly one of the hardest undertakings to interpret since Champollion deciphered the Rosetta Stone in 1822 If you can miraculously make out the words he is writing the paths his logic takes often leads to confusion debatable logic and even lunacy God I eally hope you chose Bowlaway over my kid s scrawling catastropheBowlaway will be sure to keep you up eading well into the night like the nocturnal Fennec foxes and you will devour the story uicker than a Fennec will devour an appetizing oden.
