Bowled Over harks back to an era when bowling alleys were not seen as the bastion for only white trash or competitive bowlers that they have become today. Rather, folks swarmed to gleaming bowling emporiums for fine cuisine, fancy cocktails, and stiff competition. Bowled Over covers bowling’s history, fashion, champs, surly pinboys, lady bowlerettes, and alley architecture along with important tips on scoring and alley etiquette. One of the co-authors, Gideon Bosker, is a photographer as well as a writer, and the book has over 100 images from the history of the game, culled from the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame’s archives. This fun, colorful book is a punchy tribute to the ever-popular tradition and culture of edbowling.
