The Headmaster, The Matron and the Scissors Coup, Paperback / softback Book

The Headmaster, The Matron and the Scissors Coup Paperback / softback


As readers found in BEATEN BY THE MASTERS, a host of entertaining characters face each other at the bridge table - the school Matron, the fearsome Headmaster, the ancient Reverend Benson, the much-loved senior maths master, Bertie Bellis, over-bearing school prefects and terrified younger boys.

Regular followers of David Bird's work will know what to expect - first-rate mixture of excellent bridge and sparkling dialogue. BRIDGE MAGAZINE wrote of BEATEN BY THE MASTERS: 'Each of David Bird's books features some great bridge, and that tradition carries on here with some good technical points, and a few humorous expeditions into the hinterlands of bridge.

Excellent bridge, amusing characters, and some great dialogue make this book a very good choice for a few hours of pleasure.'
