Description

As a young man, Paul Hoffman was a brilliant chess player . . . until the pressures of competition drove him to the brink of madness.

In King’s Gambit, he interweaves a gripping overview of the history of the game and an in-depth look at the state of modern chess into the story of his own attempt to get his game back up to master level — without losing his mind. It’s also a father and son story, as Hoffman grapples with the bizarre legacy of his own dad, who haunts Hoffman’s game and life.
