Summary
Like countless amateurs before him, chess has consumed Chapin's life and his mind. Captivated by it as a member of his high school chess club, his passion was rekindled during an accidental encounter with chess hustlers on the streets of Kathmandu. He played at all hours, for weeks at a time. Here he traces his two-year journey around the globe in search of glory. He travels to tournaments, and sought out a mentor in St. Louis. As his story builds toward the Los Angeles Open he chronicles the highs and lows of his fixation-- and celebrates the purity, violence, and beauty of the game. -- adapted from jacket
