Frank Brady examines the life of chess master turned international fugitive Bobby Fischer (1943-2008). At thirteen-years-old Fischer became the youngest chess master in U.S. history and gained world recognition for his 1972 championship match against Soviet master Boris Spaskky during the Cold War. Mr. Brady recounts Fischer’s reclusiveness, his issues with the U.S. government, and his reemergence later in life as a man who championed conspiracy theories and suffered from paranoia. Frank Brady recalled the life of Bobby Fischer at Barnes & Noble Booksellers in New York City. close
