Bowling for the Mob is the story of a man considered by many to be the greatest bowler that ever lived, yet his life became a struggle to conquer his inner demons. By age 12, Bob Purzycki was one of the best bowlers in the country. He was set to compete at the World´s Fair in 1964 in Queens. Two days before, a neighborhood kid hit Bob in the face with a mallet and crushed the side of his head causing permanent loss of vision in his left eye. Despite everyone telling him to give up, Bob trained to bowl with one eye. By his 18th birthday, his game had improved to a 220 average - a score that was unheard of in 1970. He joined the Professional Bowlers Association at 19 and won Bowler of the Year in 1973 and 1974. Then Bob got involved with the underworld as the mob began making bets on his tournaments, which started a downhill spiral. After getting involved with the mafia, a viscous battle with drug abuse and doing jail time, he redeemed himself and went on to play in the Super Bowl High Roller in Vegas. He won the grand prize beating the best bowlers in the world and became champion at 47. An amazing story of one man´s mistakes and accomplishments, Purzycki says it best ´´I was either going to kill somebody, kill myself or end up in an insane asylum.´´ 1. Language: English.

In Raymond Chandler´s favourite novel, Mr Bowling buys the newspapers only to find out what the latest is on the murders he´s just committed.... Mr Bowling is getting away with murder. On each occasion he buys a newspaper to see whether anyone suspects him. But there is a war on, and the clues he leaves are going unnoticed. Which is a shame, because Mr Bowling is not a conventional serial killer: he wants to get caught so that his torment can end. How many more newspapers must he buy before the police finally catch up with him? Donald Henderson was an actor and playwright who had also written novels as D. H. Landels, but with little success. While working for the BBC in London during the Second World War, his fortunes finally changed with Mr Bowling Buys a Newspaper, a darkly satirical portrayal of a murderer that was to be promoted enthusiastically by Raymond Chandler as his favourite detective novel. But even the author of The Big Sleep could not save it from oblivion: it has remained out of print for more than 60 years. This Detective Club classic is introduced by award-winning novelist Martin Edwards, author of The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books, who reveals new information about Henderson´s often troubled life and writing career. 1.

The Greatest Street in the World:The Story of Broadway, Old and New, from the Bowling Green to Albany Stephen Jenkins
When Johnson went to work for the US Antarctic Program (devoted to scientific research and education in support of the national interest in the Antarctic), he figured he´d find adventure, beauty, penguins, and lofty-minded scientists. Instead he found boredom, alcohol, and bureaucracy. As a dishwasher and garbage man at McMurdo Station, Johnson quickly shed his illusions about Antarctica. Since he and his coworkers seldom ventured beyond the station´s grim, functional buildings, they spent most of their time finding ways to entertain themselves, drinking beer, bowling, and making home movies. The dormlike atmosphere, complete with sexual hijinks and obscene costume parties, sometimes made life there feel like ´´a cheap knock-off of some original meaty experience´´. What dangers there were existed mostly in the psychological realm; most people who were there through the winter developed the ´´Antarctica stare´´, an unnerving tendency to forget what they were saying midsentence and gaze dumbly at the station walls. And if the cold and isolation didn´t drive one crazy, the petty hatreds and mindless red tape might. Though occasionally rambling and uneven, this memoir offers an insider´s look at a place that few people know anything about and fewer still have ever seen. 1. Language: English.

Jones grew up intending to be a minister, but after he was ordained and had his own church, he decided it was more important to go out and feed the needy, not just preach to people about being saved. He started by shipping surplus American wheat to Haiti, which led to developing a child-sponsorship program. For the last 28 years, Jones, his family and his staff have organized enormous relief efforts for some of the world´s worst crises-Ethiopian famines, the Bosnian war, the Murrah building bombing, 9/11 and Katrina. Although Jones structures this as a memoir, starting with his idyllic boyhood in Bowling Green, Ky., and his first experiences preaching, his real focus is on the development of his organization Feed The Children. Even without its prominent endorsement from Rick Warren (The Purpose-Driven Life), this inspirational story should reach a wide audience. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Fabry.

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.
