A fifty-year-old Bridge game provides an unexpected way to cross the generational divide between a daughter and her mother. Betsy Lerner takes us on a powerfully personal literary journey, where we learn a little about Bridge and a lot about life. After a lifetime defining herself in contrast to her mother’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” generation, Lerner finds herself back in her childhood home, not five miles from the mother she spent decades avoiding. When Roz needs help after surgery, it falls to Betsy to take care of her. She expected a week of tense civility; what she got instead were the Bridge Ladies. Impressed by their loyalty, she saw something her generation lacked. Facebook was great, but it wouldn’t deliver a pot roast. Tentatively at first, Betsy becomes a regular at her mother’s Monday Bridge club. Through her friendships with the ladies, she is finally able to face years of misunderstandings and family tragedy, the Bridge table becoming the common ground she and Roz never had. By turns darkly funny and deeply moving, The Bridge Ladies is the unforgettable story of a hard-won—but never-too-late—bond between mother and daughter.

Over the course of being employed as a substitute teacher, the author compiled a collection of classroom escapades and antics, and bound them into his memoir. Inside, the reader will come across a well-balanced book consisting of humorous episodes, along with a peppering of frustrating scenarios that emerged on any given day. One occurrence was when two kids tried to crush a trapped classmate between the wall and the piano they used as a wedge. Or when two brave nerds targeted a jock during dodgeball, only the letterman wound up taking both out in the span of two seconds. Also, the reaction the author received from a seventh- grade class when he introduced them to his collection of Garbage Pail Kids collector cards.
