Her nature oppositional, Elizabeth McCracken’s Bowlaway is a sad, funny, hilarious, and melancholic novel. It is a wacky epic family saga about a multi-generational bowling alley, with characters not pinched by society’s norms, arbiters of their own lives. Elizabeth McCracken speaks of freeing herself to her imagination.
