Review: Bridge in the Menagerie

User Review  - Greg Fanoe - Goodreads

If I had to criticize, I'd say that the constant squeeze hands get a bit repetitive, but that'd be nitpicking. The constructed hands here are hilarious. One of the funniest books I've read. Read full review

Review: Bridge in the Menagerie

User Review  - Mark Wilder - Goodreads

It won't do you any good if you don't play bridge, but for the bridge players in the world, it is a very funny and clever book. Lots of improbable hands and unlikely endplays. Loved it! Read full review

About the author (1965)

The late Victor Mollo (London, UK) is one of the best-loved authors ever to write about bridge. He wrote many excellent how-to books on the game (including the classic Card Play Technique, with Nico Gardener) but it is as a humorist, and the author of Bridge in the Menagerie and its sequels, that he is best remembered.
