Popular passages

Page 11 - The members of the exclusive club which you are about to join, differ from lesser mortals only in being more colourful, more vibrant, more clearly defined in all their traits, good and bad. They have the same frailties, commit the same follies and are just as comic in their vanity and their pretensions as the rest of the human race.
Page 11 - Is bridge a medium through which you like to express yourself? Do the cards, leaving the humdrum world behind, take you to a plane where you can be bold and brilliant, resolute and resourceful, clever, calculating and cunning? Does playing well bring you a glow of satisfaction? Does playing badly make you squirm?
Page 20 - It was clear to him that something had gone wrong with the ace-showing apparatus and the distribution promised to be unkind.

About the author (2010)

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.
