I’ll be doing my next talk and book signing at the historic Marshall Chess Club on Tuesday, November 13, at 7:00 PM. If you haven’t been to the Marshall, you should check it out. It’s in a brownstone at 23 West 10th Street in New York City, and there are great black and white photos on the walls of chess giants of yesteryear. At my talk, Dr. Frank Brady, the president of the Marshall, will lead a Q & A about King’s Gambit: A Son, a Father, and the World’s Most Dangerous Game.
Last Sunday’s San Diego Union-Tribune ran a piece called “SO MANY BOOKS…” It began “…and so little time. Every year in this country some 60,000 tomes are published, and [we] can’t get to most of them. Nonetheless, we’ve culled some from the herd that might be worth a look. These are not reviews—they are book alerts.” Thankfully, one of the four books culled was King’s Gambit, for which the Union-Tribune offered a sweet tag line: “The blood sport through the lens of an expert observer of the game, and of life.”
