In 1972 a boy from Brooklyn broke the hegemony of Soviet chess.

3 editions published in 2012 in Dutch and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In de loop van zijn rijke carrière heeft Jan Timman, zelf grootmeester, tegenover menige grote schaker gezeten. Als geen ander heeft hij op hun handen kunnen kijken - en in hun ziel. Boris Spasski, Bobby Fischer en Garry Kasparov zijn drie van de belangrijkste schakers die hij in dit boek portretteert, niet alleen als spelers. Timman haalt herinneringen op aan Botwinnik en Tal en hij vertelt over de invloed die zij op hem hebben gehad, zowel op als buiten het bord. Hij heeft oog voor hun eigenaardigheden, aardige en onaardige, menselijke en onmenselijke. Bijzonder indringend is het portret van de legendarische Aleksandr Aljechin, die Timman op het spoor komt tijdens een verblijf in Lissabon, tientallen jaren na diens dood: het verhaal is tegelijk betoverend en huiveringwekkend, even magisch als precies
