Reese and Bird's Monastery titles are regarded as the leading humorous bridge books. UNHOLY TRICKS is one of the funniest.
Unholy Tricks by Terence Reese and David Bird is a further collection of bridge tales involving the eccentric monks of St Titus.
In addition to their usual rubber bridge games - and they play for suprisingly high stakes at the monastery - the monks become involved in duplicate matches against nuns, visiting Italians and even the local police.
David Bird is recognised as the world's leading humorous bridge writer. He has written over 130 bridge books, and in the last ten years he has won six 'Book of the Year' awards from the American Bridge Teachers Association - and in 2016 won the International Bridge Press Association Book of the Year Award for The Abbot, the Parrot and the Bermuda Bowl. David contributes regularly to Bridge Magazine, English Bridge, Bridge World, the American Contract Bridge League bulletin and other magazines around the world, as well as Vu-Bridge on the internet. He is also a voice commentator for Bridge Base Online. He lives in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, England.
