Teaser Tuesdays: The Throwback Special by Chris Bachelder

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

I have a fun one for you today.

throwback special

Chris Bachelder’s novel The Throwback Special had me laughing out loud in the strangest of places. What a gift! Also, this novel is about football – the American kind – a sport and pastime I have no knowledge of or enthusiasm for; and I still loved it. I guess that’s because even more than it’s about football, it’s about people: specifically a group of not-entirely-happy middle-aged men. They interact in some funny ways. I loved this line:

Charles, who counseled adolescent girls with eating disorders, wanted to tell Robert to put that thought in his worry box.

Keep your eyes open…
