MIDNIGHT BOWLING is a brimming, brilliant, deeply American novel rooted in family secrets, young love, and the dark legacy of war. Dalton unlocks long-held, closely guarded family secrets in multi-layered love stories that play out over generations while revealing the beauty of lifelong devotion set against the backdrop of small-town American life. Dalton's writing is genius, and, with this novel, she's proven to be a true literary force of nature. --Julianna Baggott Quinn Dalton gives us fascinating insights about bowling in this excellent novel, but she knows just as much about love's complexities, particularly between fathers and their children. MIDNIGHT BOWLING rings true as a perfect strike. --Ron Rash Midnight Bowling is a terrific novel, not only a page turner, but a substantial piece of love-work. The characters are persons, not characters. The place is place, not setting. The story is convincing, sometimes scary, and often heartwarming. But it is bowling that holds the narrative together. When I felt the power of the sport take hold of me, I knew the book was a solid triumph. --Fred Chappell
