Chess : A Novel Paperback / softback
by Stefan Zweig
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
'... a human being, an intellectual human being who constantly bends the entire force of his mind on the ridiculous task of forcing a wooden king into the corner of a wooden board, and does it without going mad!'A group of passengers on a cruise ship challenge the world chess champion to a match.
At first, they crumble, until they are helped by whispered advice from a stranger in the crowd - a man who will risk everything to win.
