Product description

Review

Zweig possesses a dogged psychological curiosity, a brutal frankness, a supreme impartiality... [a] concentration of talents (Herbert Gorman The New York Times Book Review)

Reviving his reputation as a major writer of the 20th century (Chris Schuler The Independent)

A brilliant story about monomania (Julie Kavanagh The Economist Intelligent Life)

To read Zweig is to be in the presence of a properly mature writer, for all that his characters are often in the grip of highly inappropriate desires (Nicholas Lezard The Guardian)

This is powerful, brilliant, remarkable and compulsively readable stuff - beautifully presented by Pushkin Press (Mark Thwaite ReadySteadyBook.com)

Synopsis

"The Royal Game" crackles with suspense; it is the story of a man who outwits the Gestapo and finds the courage to go on living. Whilst in prison, he finds sanctuary in "imaginary" chess, but later on engages in a confrontation with the chess prodigy of the day.
