A Hole in the Earth
I just finished this book. A Hole in the Earth by Robert Bausch. It's about a 40 year old man whose estranged teenage daughter comes home to live with him for a summer. On the same day she shows up at his door step, his girlfriend tells him she's pregnant. Also? He loves nothing more than going to the races and betting on horses. The book, well, it didn't stink. I feel like it might be more appreciated by people who are living with a lot of Catholic angst, who at the age of 40 still worry about telling their father that their girlfriend is pregnant, but otherwise I thought it was a good book.
