Camp ToB 2019
Week Two: Bowlaway
Welcome back for the second week of Camp ToB 2019! Gather round for the conclusion of Elizabeth McCracken’s Bowlaway.
The first Amelia Bedelia book was published in 1963, the same year as Betty Friedan’s “The Feminine Mystique”; the series’ interest in wordplay, literalism, and figurative language is of a piece with its interest in the repetitive, devalued, yet highly intimate quality of women’s work.↩︎ The New Yorker
