    The Grandmaster - Magnus Carlsen and the Match That Made Chess Great Again - PAPERBACK
    Catalog Code: B0022SS

    Author Brin-Jonathan Butler was granted unique access to the two-and-half-week tournament and watched every move. In The Grandmaster, he aims to do for Magnus Carlsen what Norman Mailer did for Muhammed Ali in The Fight, John McPhee did for Arthur Ashe in Levels of the Game, and David Foster Wallace did for Roger Federer in his famous New York Times Magazine profile. Butler captures one of the world’s greatest sportsmen at the height of their powers, and attempts to decipher the secret to that greatness.

    CLEARANCE - Wijk aan Zee Grandmaster Chess tournament 1975
    Catalog Code: CB0385RB

    With this in mind we commissioned Lubosh Kavalek to write a tournament book for us on one of the very strongest events in 1975, the Grandmaster tournament held in the little Dutch town of Wijk aan Zee. What Kavalek has written will undoubtedly be one of the greatest tournament books of all time. He has not only contributed penetrating analysis to many of the most interesting games played in Wijk aan Zee, he has also written something about every game, giving the reader an insight to the international tournament arena and helping him to understand what makes a chess master tick.

    Great Encounters in Contemporary Chess
    Catalog Code: CB0500RB

    The moment of death has the power to stress in a single move the achievement or the futility of a life. 

    The death of Alekhine contains a paradox. If he had sought happiness, he found something different; if he had wanted fame, his name will live as long as chess is played.
