Product Details


“There is an underworld in bowling that is as dark, deep and mysterious as anything in sport. Redemption Alley isn’t just a book about knocking down pins; it’s a narrative of hope that will strike at your heart. I, put simply, love this book.” —Lars Anderson, bestselling author of The Storm and the Tide and Carlisle vs. Army

“Bob Perry’s walk down the alley of addiction is a mythic, epic tale of the light of extraordinary potential snuffed out by a brain hijacked by drugs and alcohol. He rises from the depths of desperation and a seemingly hopeless state to bask in the light of recovery and grace. This deeply inspiring story carries the message that there really is no hole too deep.” —Harry Haroutunian, MD Physician Director Betty Ford Center

“One thing that I’ve always stressed to my players is the importance of never giving up, no matter what. Bob Perry’s life is a testament to that. Summoning the strength within himself to persevere against impossible odds, Bob emerged a champion. If I had 22 kids with his heart and resolve, we’d never lose a game.” —Mike London, Head Football Coach, University of Virginia

“This isn’t a movie, because it’s real. This isn’t fiction, because it bleeds truth on every page. This is the journey of a one-time child bowling prodigy who sank to the bottom of life’s darkest whirlpool and then, through sheer determination and guts, swam back toward the light. It is one hell of a book.” —Jerry Izenberg, columnist emeritus, The Star Ledger
