    One thought on “Liberty Lanes”

    1. As an oldster, reading about oldsters, I believe that Robin Troy has given poignancy and truthfulness to the subject of old age.Her short novel Liberty Lanes is about relationships among a group of long-time friends in a small Montana town. All are more than 70 years old; they bowl together, have parties, and generally enjoy having fun. Then stalwart member Nelson Moore prevents one of the women, Fran, from choking to death on a chicken bone. Nelson is a hero; he is interviewed by the local pape [...]

    2. Bowling. No, not for dollars or for Willard's trophies, but for Nelson's wellness of mind. What Ms. Troy captures here is an intimate look into the life of an early dementia sufferer and the lives of his close circle of friends. And, because she does such a good job of revealing the workings, or lack thereof, of such a mind, and the shared concerns of those friends, this is one scary story for anyone approaching that stage of life. This is one of those books everyone over 55 should read as nearl [...]

    3. This is a sweet little book, didn't put it down till I finished. It really addresses the geriatric population of a small town, and puts them in a real life view. I loved it! (Although there are NO cardinals in Montana!) This story follows one older guy who is struggling with memory loss, and how his circle of old and new friends help him cope.

    4. This is a sweet story about the members of a seniors bowling league in a small town in Montana. The characters are facing a range of issues common to the elderly, such as maintaining their independence and coping with the onset of dementia. The book is entertaining and touching (and very well written -- by the daughter of one of my sister's best friends !).

    5. I loved everything about this book: its elegant, spare and beautiful prose, its frank and loving examination of longtime relationships in a small town, and how friends see their own mortality and responsibility in the face of one of their own's growing dementia. So glad to have read Liberty Lanes.
