THE BRIDGE PLAYERS' BEDSIDE COMPANION

A full deck- of light pieces and poems- cover every aspect of this game- from its development, from whist to auction to contract, to its celebrities and famous matches. A psychologist looks at the game- and a doctor; there are its superstitions, kibitzers, players (women and men); the social- and intellectual- problems it presents, and the fine points of play- once engaged. H. Allen Smith, Elmer Davis, Maugham, George S. Kaufman, and many experts are among the contributors- and a public is predicated among the addicted.
