Bridge in the Menagerie:
The Winning Ways of the Hideous Hog

Victor Mollo

Faber & Faber 1965
A book review by Danny Yee © 1992
Bridge in the Menagerie is a collection of humorous stories set in an imaginary rubber bridge club in London. The hands involved are cute, the stories are funny, and the characters are memorable (the Hideous Hog and the Rueful Rabbit are now a part of bridge lore). One of the most famous bridge books ever written, this should certainly be enjoyed by any bridge player with a sense of humour — I've read it three times now.

March 1992
