Bowling Across America: 50 States in Rented Shoes


Bowling Across America: 50 States in Rented Shoes (2008) by Mike Walsh

27-year-old Mike Walsh, still reeling from the recent death of his father, quits his unfulfilling advertising job in Chicago, borrows his mom's car and hits the road on a modest quest to bowl in all 50 states. Along the way, he gets a smattering of press, a sponsorship from Miller High Life and a sampling of modern day bowling culture. Walsh serves up a hefty dose of self-depreciating humor in this romping travelogue and the randomness of his adventure makes for enjoyable light reading. Check catalog for availability.
