For people-watchers everywhere, Brad Darach uncovers the sometimes grotesque, often hilarious secret life of Fischer the Great. Through screaming tantrums, paranoid panics, greedy schemes, orgies of eating, desperate loneliness and magnificent courage he reveals sides of Bobby never seen before. 

 

Writing with eye-witness force, Darrach shows Bobby in action-artfully handling international diplomacy (“I’m gonna teach those Icelandic creeps a lesson!”), striving for fairness in his business deals (“I don’t want anybody to make money out of me”) graciously discussing his opponent Boris Spassky (“I’m crushing him with brute force! Haas!”) and accepting the adulation of his fans (“Tell ‘em if they bother me any more, I’ll go home!”)

 

Delving into the past, Darrach also reveals the origins of Bobby’s chess genius, his peculiar relationship with his mother, his life as a teenage hermit in a rubble-filled Brooklyn apartment, his conversation to an extremist religious sect, and his curious attitudes toward young woman, Advance readers have hailed his book as the most deliciously indiscreet biography ever written.
