CO-WINNER - 2009 - International Bridge Press Association Book of the Year
A resident of Hamilton Ontario and a lawyer by profession he was also an expert bridge player who won the North American Men's Pairs (arguably in those days the strongest pairs event of the year) in 1969. His trenchant commentaries on the game often thinly disguised as fiction appeared regularly in The Bridge World and other magazines in the 1970s and 1980s. A small collection of his work was published previously but has long been out of print.
Readers who are familiar with Vine's writings will be delighted to see them once more available this time in a much more comprehensive collection. Those who haven't discovered Frank Vine's work before are in for a rare treat.
