About the Book

This new collection of David Silver's humorous bridge stories will be welcomed by his many fans around the world. This time with the assistance of Australian bridge hand connoisseur and collector Tim Bourke, the redoubtable Professor Silver again ventures into the realms of literary parody. Astute readers will recognize versions of the works of Hemingway, Dickens, and other literary giants, while movie buffs will enjoy the bridge versions of Citizen Kane, Casablanca, and Star Trek: TNG. And when the professor takes on Death himself in the ultimate post-mortem analysis, you just know who's going to come out a winner.
