This story reveals much about the obsessiveness involved in the international game of chess. Bobby Fischer and his father were drawn into the bizarre world of Manhattan's seedy chess parlours and Park Square in Washington where chess fanatics sleep rough and hustle for two-dollar games. By contrast, Soviet chess players are feted like filmstars and the author unveils the anti-Semitism, political blackmail and drug-taking behind the Soviet chess establishment.
