I brought finished books to the Bridge Ladies today. It felt momentous to me. It’s more than three years since I started sitting in on their game, interviewing them, learning bow to play. Somehow all those lunches and games and conversations with them became a book. About them. Us. THey didn’t say much beyond Thank you. They looked at the inscriptions I wrote to them, they read the acknowledgments. Completely in character, they were taciturn in the extreme. I played a few hands and left. On the way home, I stopped at Krauser’s and bought fistfuls of penny candy.
