Gardar Sverrison

A Personal Memoir

Sample pages (pdf)

This extraordinary book describes the last years of the great legend and World Chess Champion, Bobby Fischer. It is written by his close friend and confidant, the Icelandic author Gardar Sverrisson who was instrumental in procuring Fischer asylum in Iceland in 2004. For the remaining years of his life, Fischer resided in Reykjavik. He was in daily contact with Sverrisson who gradually became the only friend he would trust.

Here the real story of Fischer's final years is told for the first time. Beautifully written, the book gives a unique insight into Fischer's personality. We encounter a passionate and complex man, a sincere and generous friend, a bookworm and a nature lover, who is both contemplative and witty when reflecting on his turbulent life, his controversial principles, exceptional career and many historic chess champions.

Gardar Sverrison was born in Reykjavik in 1959 and has worked as a journalist from an early age. He was a board member of the Icelandic Human Rights Centre and president of the National Coalition of People with Disabilities in Iceland. In 2004 he was part of the group that pressed for Bobby Fischer to be released from detention in Japan and granted asylum in Iceland.

Published 2019, hardback, 224 pages.
