The story of Bill Hook?s life with his many passions: chess, painting, traveling, photography and blackjack. A regular at New York?s legendary chess club, Fisher?s on 42nd Street, Hook met a motley crowd of amateurs, hustlers and celebrities such as Marcel Duchamp, Stanley Kubrick and New York Times music critic Harold Schonberg. With a keen eye for detail Bill Hook portrays lesser gods and famous champions, including a young Bobby Fischer, who, after Hook beat him in their first four blitz encounters, started to cry.
