Does chess make for perfect novels?
Have you read any good novels that involved chess in the story? I've read quite a few non-instructional chess books...
- King's Gambit by Paul Hoffman
- The immortal Game by David Shenk
- White King and Red Queen by Daniel Johnson
- Chess B1tch by Jennifer Shahade
- Bobby Fischer Goes to War by Edmonds and Eidinow
...but I've only read one chess novel, a detective story whose title I can't even remember (a translation from a Spanish writer, I think).
An article in the Guardian recently claims that 'chess is a perfect game for fiction'. Do any Chess.com members have any recommendations for good novels that prominently feature chess?
