Classic Kantar: A Collection of Bridge Humor $14.95

Eddie Kantar
This is an general interest book for any level player. Eddie Kantar is not only one of today's best bridge writers, he's also one of the funniest. His two previous collections, Bridge Humor and The Best of Eddie Kantar, have been out of print for some years, and are still much sought after. For Classic Kantar, Eddie has selected the very best stories from the two previous books, and has added many new ones. As always, he pokes fun at the top experts, and chronicles some of the bids and plays they hoped would never come to light (typically, though, there are more of his disasters in here than anyone else's.) His misadventures as a 'world traveler' are legendary. And appearing here for the first time in book form are all the stories from Eddie's notorious and hilarious Home Game. This book which was published in 1999, contains 190 pages. Paperback.

 

 Bridge the Silver Way $15.95

David Silver & Tim Bourke
David Silver's first two books of humorous bridge stories have received terrific reviews, and this new collection will be welcome by his many fans. Our familiar cast of characters (Wright Cardinal, Brad Bullock, Bruce Gowdy, and of course, Professor Silver himself) again takes bridge into the realms of literary parody. Astute readers will recognize allusions to the works of Hemingway and other literary giants, while movie buffs will enjoy the 'bridge versions' of Citizen Kane, Casablanca, Star Trek TNG, and other favorites. And when the professor takes on Death and the Devil in the ultimate post-mortem analysis, you just know who's going to come out the winner.

Paperback, 192 pp., ISBN 1-894514-16-9

 A Study in Silver $9.95

David Silver
