Welcome to 603 Bowling Avenue, a lush, empty Colonial Revival house tucked away in a leafy Nashville neighborhood. Who´s that in the ratty attic bedroom, holed up like a squirrel, writing real estate ads as fast as she can? Delia Ballenger, former Nashvillian. She´s back in town to sell the house that her tender-hearted big sister inexplicably left her after dying in a car crash. Delia needs to get back to Chicago as fast as possible. But uninvited people keep showing up at the front door: Her mother, Grace Ballenger. Brilliant federal judge and the number-one reason Delia lives in another state. A patrician and poorly socialized neighbor, Angus Donald. Shelly Carpenter, the watchful housekeeper who raised Delia. Brother-in-law Bennett Schwartz, a wretched surgeon, along with his girls Cassie and Amelia-the nieces she´s never known. And, most vexing, a charming real estate agent, Henry Peek. Delia finds herself up to her eyeballs in a flood of mysteries, secrets, and the sort of love that sneaks up on you. For everyone who has muttered ´´You can´t go home again,´´ here´s what happens when you go anyway. You´ll laugh. You may cry, if you´re the weepy type. And you´ll cheer for Delia even as you wonder how she can eat a Pop-Tart as an entree. Like The Descendants, Bowling Avenue is a story of learning how to let go, and hold on. 1. Language: English.

A Macat audio analysis of Robert Putnam´s Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community. Social capital - the relationships between people that allow communities to function well - has long been recognized as the grease that oils the wheels of society. It facilitates trust, creates bonds among neighbors, and even helps boost employment. In his 2000 book, Bowling Alone, American sociologist Robert Putnam argues that Americans have become disconnected from one another and from the institutions of their common life and investigates the consequences of this change. Looking at a range of indicators, from membership in formal organizations to the number of invitations being extended to informal dinner parties, Putnam demonstrates that Americans are interacting less and creating less ´´social capital´´. Putnam did not invent the notion of social capital, but he was the first to take a broader view, looking at the social capital generated by people´s engagement with the civic lives of their towns or cities. It would be difficult to overstate the impact of Bowling Alone, one of the most frequently cited social science publications of the last half century. You can find out more about how Putnam´s ideas have been challenged and applied - and how his work has impacted thinkers in other academic disciplines - by exploring further in the Macat Library.

A mixed-breed offspring of Marley and Me and All Creatures Great and Small, His Name Was Brownie is your next book for fun. Peopled with multiple Marley dogs (and Marlas as well), nearly all listeners will recognize their dog or cat, son or daughter, spouse - maybe even themselves - as the featured characters barrel their way through their laughable adventures.Collies and Irish wolfhounds bound through the story; but they have many companions, including a tuxedo cat, a mastiff, a demented border collie, two Siamese cats, two 25-pound attack cats, the monkey from hell, a Labrador retriever nicknamed ´´Blockhead” because of his habit of getting his head stuck in plastic milk cartons, black witch moths, and a bufo. Their escapades take them through beautiful areas of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Hawaii before the clan finally lands in Wisconsin near the Wisconsin River.Dr. Judi Roller has been breeding and showing collies and Irish wolfhounds for many years, garnering AKC championships for her dogs and several group placements along the way. She has also enjoyed judging multiple AKC matches. Her previous book, The Politics of the Feminist Novel, won an Outstanding Academic Book award, and she has published literary criticism as well as book reviews and occasional poems and a short story.Her BA cum laude was earned at Bowling Green State University, and her doctorate came from the University of Michigan, even though she is a homegrown Ohio State Buckeye, which became a challenge while she was teaching freshman English during her graduate work at Michigan. Now retired from university administration, she has more time for dogs, golf, travel, bridge, and reading. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Felicia Elenum.

After hitting rock bottom through addiction, bowling legend Bob Perry learned that religion is for people who don´t want to go to hell. Spirituality is for people who have already been there. Perry tells his heart-wrenching, inspiring story of bowling for the mob and drug and alcohol addiction in his new book, Redemption Alley. Perry, considered by many to be one of the most naturally-talented bowlers in the history of the sport, had potential to become one of the best even at the young age of 12. Unfortunately, he grew up in 1970s Paterson, New Jersey, where everyone knew someone who was ´´connected´´ - with the mob, that is. Instead of training for championships, Perry began doing odd jobs for wiseguys and hustling hundreds of thousands of dollars in after-house ´´action bowling´´ for John Gotti, who later became the boss of the Gambino crime family. Perry´s connections with organized crime eventually landed him in federal prison, but not before he became addicted to crack cocaine, alcohol, and painkillers and was homeless on the streets of New York. Ultimately, Perry washed up on the shores of St. Christopher´s Inn, a shelter run by Franciscan monks. It was there that he had six fateful encounters with an angelic messenger who no one else could see - a monk whose message was so powerful that Bob Perry has now been sober for 22 years. In Redemption Alley, Perry not only shares his remarkable story of bowling success, his dangerous association with hoodlums and gangsters, and his recovery from addiction, but also his inspiring, decades-long spiritual quest, and his sober journey back into the bowling world. 1.

Cage the Elephant has toured the globe, sold hundreds of thousands of albums, and become, in Rolling Stone’s words, ´´one of rock’s best young bands.” Before any of that, though, Cage was just five guys from Bowling Green, a small town in southern Kentucky. In Home Grown, Craig Fehrman secured Almost Famous-levels of access to tell the story of Cage’s rise. But along the way he discovered an even bigger story - how a tiny, overlooked place like Bowling Green had itself become one of the most vibrant music scenes in the country. Through vivid storytelling and exclusive details, Home Grown traces the history of Cage, from the band forming in high school to hanging with the Foo Fighters. But the Single also explores how and why Cage keeps coming home. You’ll meet the characters and locations that make up Bowling Green’s scene: the music-first dive bar where Cage got its start; the creaky, Pirate-themed house where artists gather to jam; the radio DJ who sacrificed everything to play local music - plus a slew of exciting young bands, all in different stages of their careers. How does a music scene work, especially in a place most people assume doesn’t even have a music scene? Home Grown has the answers, and it makes a great read for music fans - or for anyone who grew up in a place like Bowling Green. Craig Fehrman is a writer who lives in Indiana. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, and Slate, among others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rex Anderson.
