Russian silhouettes by Genna Sosonko( Book )

The dissolution of the Soviet Union marked the end of a unique chapter in the history of chess. With hindsight we can only marvel at the pivotal place the royal game occupied in the biggest country in the world. Originally embraced by Lenin as 'gymnastics of the mind', chess developed into an ideological weapon during the Cold War.

'At the time Botvinnik was the personification of chess in the Soviet Union - river: Volga, poet: Mayakovsky, goalkeeper: Yashin, chess player: Botvinnik. And suddenly - a kid with a name as short as a gunshot: Tal!' Genna Sosonko's riveting portrait of Mikhail Tal, the Magician from Riga who to this day mesmerizes chess fans all over the world, bears all the hallmarks of the author's inimitable writing. Few - if any - knew 'Misha' as well as his good friend and training partner. Here you see the real Tal: nonchalant genius, charming wit, womanizer, cult hero and drug addict. Mikhail Tal is on
