In serendipituous fashion I came across an article written by Dick Cavett of New York.  Mr. Cavett, it seems, had a well-regarded television career as  "the host of “The Dick Cavett Show” — which aired on ABC from 1968 to 1975 and on public television from 1977 to 1982."

During his tenure as a TV host, he interviewed Bobby Fischer three times. As a result, he developed a certain perspective on Fischer which he reveals in this superbly written article.

I would strongly suggest that anyone even remotely interested in Bobby Fischer reads this article entitled,  Was It Only aGame?  and the follow-up article, Bobby and You.

A video of one of the interviews can be viewed on YouTube.
