Pin Action

Cover: 'Pin Action'

Staff Review: "Pin Action" by Gianmarc Manzione


Gianmarc Manzione recreates the world of 1960s and 1970s action bowling in this story of championship bowler Ernie Schlegel.

Using interviews, archival materials, and his own love of bowling, the author makes the reader feel like he or she is at the bowling alley, watching Schlegel bowl in one of his flashy outfits or witnessing a gangster draw his knife if a bet didn't turn out as planned. This is an exciting read, even if you aren't a fan of bowling.

Audience: adults | Genre: nonfiction
