Inhaltsangabe: 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.
Rezension: Searching for Bobby Fischer is the story of Fred Waitzkin and his son Josh, 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 wonders about and searches for the elusive Bobby Fischer, whose myth still dominates the chess world and profoundly affects Waitzkin's dreams for his son.
