Master Bridge, Prose: non-fiction, Bridge

Further hilarious bridge stories about the bridge-playing monks at St Titus.

In this eighth collection of stories featuring the bridge-crazy monks of St Titus, the pompous and self-important Abbot suffers more than his fair share of the game's aggravations. The world's worst house guest, Brother Herman from Australia, pays the monastery a visit. A team of attractive girls arrives at St Titus, playing unexpectedly well and unsettling the monastery novices. A disastrous start sends the Abbot to the bottom row of Swiss Teams, where he receives unwelcome advice from Josie Threlfall, a local teacher of the game.
