Searching for Bobby Fischer

Product Code: CB0244RB

img

Fred Waitzkin was smitten by chess during the historic Fischer-Spassky championship in 1972. When Fischer disappeared from public view, Waitzkin's interest waned—until his own son Josh emerged as a chess prodigy. Searching for Bobby Fischer is the story of Fred Waitzkin and his son, from the moment six-year-old Josh first sits down at a chessboard until he competes for the national championship. Drawn into the insular, international network of chess, they must also navigate the difficult waters of their own relationship. All the while, Waitzkin searches for the elusive Bobby Fischer, whose myth still dominates the chess world and profoundly affects Waitzkin's dreams for his son. About the Author(s) Fred Waitzkin, novelist and writer, is the author of The Last Marlin and Searching for Bobby Fischer and has written for The New York Times Magazine, New York, Esquire, Sports Illustrated, and Motorboating and Sailing. He lives in New York City and Martha's Vineyard, and still fishes regularly in the Bahamas.
