Part pop culture, part history, part cookbook--Bridge Table or What's Trump Anyway? tells the story of this classic--and classy--card game and the decades-lasting bridge clubs it has created ever since the 1890s. This story, from a sociable-bridge-playing woman's viewpoint for the first time, is told in 52 short chapters of notes, quotes, anecdotes, comment, menus and recipes, even a few bits of poetry. It is the perfect gift for your bridge-playing friends whether they play sociable or serious bridge.

The American Contract Bridge League Bulletin said: "...wonderful history of contract bridge...makes a great case for why [sociable bridge] deserves new devotees...an unexpectedly fun read." And Marla Paul, author of Friendship Crisis (about the difficulty of making and keeping friends in this transient world) commented: "Now I know what's missing from my life. A weekly game of social bridge...can provide the social glue of life-long friendships."

From the Author:

It is my late-life "cause" that the kind of sociable bridge game I play not end with my generation of bridge-playing old ladies. Serious bridge has the ACBL (American Contract Bridge League) to see that it grows and thrives in this new millennium. Sociable bridge has only me (that I know of)and my book as its advocate because even though sociable bridge players outnumber serious players by the millions, we have no organizational structure. I'm hoping our boomer daughters will take up their mom's favorite card game which, once learned, lasts a lifetime and (scientists are saying) helps to reach a dementia-free old age.

From the Back Cover:

You don't need to play bridge to enjoy this book about the subterranean sisterhood of sociable bridge and ladies bridge lunch. Is there a town in America without at least one such bridge club that's lasted for decades? Bridge Table is especially for bridge-playing women, boomer daughters, food editors, devotees of Retro pop culture--even serious bridge players.
