More Fun Than Bowling

  • Jake owns a bowling alley in a small Midwestern town. He is sitting on a hilltop where two of his three wives are buried. In his younger days, he was a promising concert musician but a foul-tip baseball broke his fingers which subsequently healed into a perfect bowler's grip. Jake replays the key frames of his life and, from time to time, is visited by his daughter Molly who has become adept at talking women into marrying her father for love and free lane time. But who is that nattily dressed man with dark glasses and a revolver lurking nearby?

Gaius Valerius Flaccus Translated by David R. Slavin

Apollonius Rhodius Translated by Peter Green

March 15 - March 24

  • Jason and the Argonauts encounter an array of daunting challenges in their “first voyage of the world.” Jason and his crew illus­trate the essence of all such journeys to follow—their un­predictability, their inspiring and overwhelming breadth of emotion, and their lessons in the inevitability of failure and loss. Bursts of humor and fantastical creatures enrich a story whose characters reveal remarkable complexity. Medea is profoundly sympathetic even as the seeds are sown for the monstrous life ahead of her, and the brute strength of Hercules leaves him no less vulnerable to the vicissitudes of love.
