Böhm, Hans/ Jongkind, Kees/ Bobby Fischer

The Wandering King
(Batsford, London 2004)

Paperback, 158 Seiten

in englischer Sprache


KLAPPENTEXT:

Is Bobby Fischer the all-time greatest chess genius? No one can answer that question but his career is truly inspiring: the struggle of one man against the entire Eastern European chess elite. After a steady but spectacular triumphal march towards the World Title in 1972 he never played in public again, except for a controversial match in 1992 against his old rival Boris Spassky. Since then, an increasingly alienated Fischer has wandered the globe, only surfacing for occasional radio interviews. His lowest point came when he was heard condoning the attack on the Twin Towers in New York. The controversy surrounding Fischer continues to deepen following his Japanese jail sentence and subsequent extradition battle.


Despite his idiosyncrasies, Fischer has become an intriguing living legend. This book traces his story through interviews with many former friends and rivals of Fischer, including Yasser Seirawan and Anatoly Karpov, and his former bodyguard and fitness trainer, The authors have dug through the archives, including recently opened FBI files, in order to place the more negative aspects of the man into context - his tough upbringing, his exceptional talent, his' anti-social behaviour, his fight against the chess authorities and his growing ' eccentricity. This book is a must for anyone interested in this remarkable man and his fascinating life.
