Insanity, passion and addiction
English chess Grandmaster Danny Gormally finds his life at a
crossroads. Bored with Berlin defences, sick of the endless grind of the
English chess circuit, he tries his luck on the European scene.
In this at times hilarious and tragic account, Gormally
shares the inner workings of the chess world — a world riven with
insecurities, strange social customs and petty rivalries, while casting
his analytical eye even on topics as disparate as eccentric waiters,
strange Amsterdam zoos and inspiring mountain passes. It’s a story you
won’t want to miss.
