For more than three decades, David Bird’s tales of the bridge-crazy monks of St Titus have appeared in magazines around the world. In this eleventh collection in book form, the pompous and self-important Abbot travels to the Upper Bhumpopo mission in Africa. He plays against the Witchdoctor, the Parrot, Mrs Okuku and Miss Nabooba, Mhozi and Mjubu – characters that are familiar from earlier books in the series.

Regular followers of David Bird’s work will know what to expect – a first-rate mixture of excellent bridge, entertaining characters and sparkling dialogue.
