it was amazing

My first introduction to Zweig and to the NYRB series of books (which I will pick up off the shelf of a bookstore to examine even if I've never heard of the author or title, because their choices are so consistently interesting and unusual.) This is also the first work of fiction I've read that captures the small glories and frustrations of amateur chess.
