Chess, Paperback

Chess Paperback



'...a human being, an intellectual human being who constantly bends the entire force of his mind on the ridiculous task of forcing a wooden king into the corner of a wooden board, and does it without going mad'.

A group of passengers on a cruise ship challenge the world chess champion to a match.

At first, they crumble, until they are helped by whispered advice from a stranger in the crowd - a man who will risk everything to win.

Stefan Zweig's acclaimed novella "Chess" is a disturbing, intensely dramatic depiction of obsession and the price of genius.
