New: Sosonko's World Champions

Just in from our printers: The World Champions I Knew, by Genna Sosonko

Genna Sosonko, in a brilliant 70-page essay not published in English before, wrote a startling portrait of his friend Misha Tal. Here you get, for the first time, the real Tal: nonchalant genius, charming wit, womanizer, cult hero and drug addict.
Besides Tal, Sosonko brings to life: Capablanca, Alekhine, Euwe, Botvinnik, Smyslov and Petrosian. His portraits are based on fresh research and/or personal memories.
"Sosonko brings genuine delight", writes Garry Kasparov in his foreword to this splendid collection.

Please have a look at The World Champions I Knew.
