Bobby Fischer: The Wandering King
Is Bobby Fischer the all-time greatest chess genius? There is no one who is able to answer that question. But his career inspires us: the struggle of one man against the entire Eastern European chess elite. After a laborious but spectacular triumphal march towards the World title in 1972 he never played again in public, except for a dubious match in 1992 against his old rival Boris Spassky. Since then Fischer has been wandering embittered and paranoid around the globe. His voice could be occasionally heard on a radio station where he made shocking remarks, with cheers about the collapse of the Twin Towers in New York being the lowest point. Bobby Fischer has become an intriguing living legend. Inducement for this book was the documentary The Wandering King on the NOS (Dutch BBC) in which the life of Bobby Fischer, who turned sixty in 2003, was reconstructed.
