Description:

The novelist who wrote The Hustler, basis for the Paul Newman movie, presents here a story about a chess player and a champion woman chess player at that who was taught to play by her school janitor. Becoming a kind of cult classic and hard to find in great condition this copy meets the bill. A stated first edition, tightly bound, without names or other markings, a small stain on the front free endpaper is about all the flaws there is. The DJ is likewise clean, bright, just a hint of edgewear at the tips, but looking very nice in a protective mylar sleeve. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Orphan Beth Harmon overcomes her fears and shyness by learning to play chess and, over the years, improves her game to become national champion and to play the world grandmasters

From the Back Cover:The Queen's Gambit is sheer entertainment. It is a book I reread
every few years--for the pure pleasure and skill of it.” -Michael Ondaatje

“Tevis traps us in the breathless drama of the moment and makes us feel the same intense involvement his characters feel.” –The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Ultimately, this is not really a novel about chess. . . . It can be read with intense enjoyment by those who know nothing about the game, as long as they are interested in what it means to be human at the deepest levels.” –The Washington Post

“It’s advisable to tape your fingers before opening The Queen’s Gambit. Otherwise, the suspense may bring on nail-chewing right to the elbow.” –Houston Chronicle

“There’s more excitement in Beth than in the collected works of Robert Ludlum.” –Forth Worth Star-Telegram

“One of the most satisfying novels of the year.” –St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Compelling . . . A magnificent obsession.” –Los Angeles Times
