David Bird's stories of the bridge-crazy monks of St Titus have been appearing now for nearly three decades and have proved immensely popular around the world. This latest account of the hilarious happenings at the monastery entertains and instructs in the inimitable Bird style. In HEAVENLY CONTRACTS we meet again the pompous and self-important Abbot who is hosting the annual St Francis of Assisi Swiss teams for monastic establishments. Hilarious encounters ensue against a team of monks from Southern Germany and some equally incomprehensible friars from Scotland. The show-down comes in a final match against their old rivals, the nuns of St Hilda's. Regular followers of David Bird's work will know what to expect - a first-rate mixture of excellent bridge, entertaining characters and sparkling dialogue.
