John Healy

This collection of John Healy's games, and positions from his games, show how tactics and psychology can be used to find opportunities in the least promising of situations and create winning chances from even the most dubious looking positions.

Each game sparkles with some unusual tactical or defensive motif. Along with the games the author describes in eloquent but brutal language the beautiful, sometimes terrible, world of chess - where sport, art and science merge.

Also included are 22 "find the winning move" diagrammed puzzles, taken from the author's games, with solutions at the end of the book.

John Healy's previous book "The Grass Arena" catapulted him to worldwide literary fame. That classic memoir described how Healy, by discovering chess, escaped a life of alcoholism, violence, vagrancy, crime and imprisonment.

Published 2010, softback, 135 pages.
