THURSDAY: Downhill Lie
A non-fiction offering from Carl Hiaasen, author of books like Hoot and Scat.
While I don't personally enjoy golf, my father is an avid golfer who plays at least twice a week every summer. I checked this out to see if it might be something he would enjoy. Hiaasen chronicles his return to the game of golf after over 30 years away from it. He shares, in great humiliating detail at times, the ups and downs of his return to the sport.
Even as a non-golfer, I found moments in the book where I laughed out loud. My father enjoyed the book as a birthday gift and has happily passed it on to his entire group of golfing retirees. Consider sharing this one with the golfers in your life.
