Well I was surprised that I loved a book about the game of bridge. I used to recall seeing a bridge column in the paper and had no idea what it meant - I felt the same way about the passages about bridge in this book but it was only the scaffold of a family story. I will admit that by the end of the book I had gleaned some knowledge of bridge but I had a greater appreciation of the tangle of lies and stories that the families in the book shared.
