9780713487015: Destiny at Bay: More Magic From Mollo's Menagerie

Revised edition of the fifth Mollo classic; Brilliant plays against a background of human follies; Humorous and engaging; Join the Griffins, the bridge club where all the members have star parts to play, and take up arms in the great battle between Predestination and Freewill. Brilliant plays in attack and defence, devil's coups and smothers, squeezes and endplays, scissors and uppercuts, are all seen against a background of human follies and foibles. Psychology and imagination, no less than science and technique, light up the scene. In this, the fifth title in the Menagerie series, you meet again the Rueful Rabbit, luckiest of mortals; Karapet, the unluckiest player since job; and Walter the Walrus, the point-count specialist. With Papa's arrogance, the Toucan's humility, the secretary Bird's pedantry and Molly the Mule's rampant feminism, they make every deal vibrate and sparkle. The Hideous Hog remains all but insufferable as he clashes daily with destiny, and in the final episode confronts the prince of darkness himself.
