"A book about bridge that is not really about bridge at all," is how Sandy Balfour describes his book "Vulnerable in Hearts". It's about his dad in South Africa who taught him to play in "the golden age of apartheid", and about his son who was born knowing how to play bridge.
"Everyone loves bridge," his father says at one point, "they just don't know it yet.".
This lovely, lyrical book is about a complex game, a complex man, and a family that makes it through the decades with love and understanding.
