Stefan Zweig

An epic chess match on a transatlantic liner unearths a story of persecution and obsession. One of the most perfectly griping novellas from a master of the form, Stefan Zweig. Chess world champion Mirko Czentovic is travelling on an ocean liner to Buenos Aires. Dull-witted in all but chess, he entertains himself on board by allowing others to challenge him in the game, before beating each of them and taking their money. But there is another passenger with a passion for chess: Dr B, previously driven  to insanity during Nazi imprisonment by the chess games in his imagination. But in agreeing to take on Czentovic, what price will Dr B ultimately pay? A moving portrait of one mans madness, A Chess Story is a searing examination of the power of the mind and the evil it can do.

Then a mysterious passenger steps forward to advise them and their fortunes change. How he came to possess his extraordinary grasp of the game of chess and at what cost lie at the heart of Zweig's story. This chapter contains all books on chess related stories, for example on its rich history. How and where is chess invented and evolved to the game as we know it?
