Chess Master Plays Multiple, Simultaneous Games and Discusses New Book
Lisa, a Chess Novel
“Two thumbs up. This is the most realistic chess novel ever.” Full review here. – Chess Writer Dana Mackenzie
Watch the official trailer here: https://vimeo.com/79862070
The debut novel by chess grandmaster Jesse Kraai tells the story of a 13-year-old California girl who defies her mother and her school to study chess with Russian master Igor Ivanov. Lisa is an exploration of what it means to get an education in chess, and a meditation on what makes the game so compelling to those who play. It is a fantastic story with a cast of characters that will be familiar to anyone who’s ever set foot in a tournament hall.
Lisa is available in ebook and paperback.
