Bowling is a splendid example of Thoreau's observation that "most men lead lives of quiet desperation."
A novel of a man's search to regain the lost values of his own and his country's past.

Every middle-aged man should read this one for directions on how to make it to old age. For all the high-flown sociological and party-line interpretations this work is a manual for the man who stands on the edge--of old age, that is, and wants to look back for a moment before night closes in. It is a timeless work, at least so long as "men lead lives of quiet desperation."Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
