Bridge the Silver Way: A Third Collection of Bridge Stories

0 Reviews
David Silver's three books of humorous bridge stories have received terrific throughout the bridge world. In all of them, the hero is the author's alter ego, Professor Silver, first as a teacher in a community college, and then as a bridge consultant as he moves into the realms of literary parody. Astute readers will recognise allusions to the works of Hemingway, Conan Doyle, Dickens and others, while movie fans will enjoy the bridge versions of 'Citizen Kane', 'Casablanca' and 'Star Trek, TNG'. And when the professor takes on Death or the Devil in the ultimate post-mortem analysis, you just know who's going to come out a winner.
