Genna Sosonko

The chess players that Genna Sosonko brings to life in this new collection of his acclaimed writing have one thing in common: they were all world champions.

The riveting portrait of Mikhail Tal bears all the hallmarks of the author's writing. Here you get, for the first time, the "Magician from Riga" in full: the nonchalant genius, the charming wit, the womanizer, the cult hero and the drug addict.

Sosonko's story of Alexander Alekhine is based on new research and his essay on Jose Raul Capablanca on unforgettable meetings with Capa's widow Olga.

Countless hours of private conversation as well as research in recently opened KGB archives form the basis of unique portraits of Max Euwe, Mikhail Botvinnik, Vasily Smyslov and Tigran Petrosian.

Published 2013, softback, 238 pages.
