Children of God Go Bowling
We first met Shannon OlsonÂour semifictional heroineÂin the enormously popular Welcome to My Planet. Now, in Children of God Go Bowling, we find Shannon in her mid-thirties and still besieged by reminders that her life is anything but normal. As everyone around her blossoms in marital bliss and home ownership, Shannon embarks upon a feng shuiÂinspired campaign to make room for a future, from joining group therapy to accepting blind dates (hey, you never know). With encore performances by Flo (called Âone of the great moms of American fictionÂ by Garrison Keillor), and other indelible characters from OlsonÂ's previous novel, this is another heartbreaking and hilarious read by a young author who is truly going places
