Product Details

In all of chess history you cannot find another player with his long-lived discipline, vigor, and ferocity.--Garry Kasparov

Now at the beginning of the 21st century, the aggressive style of the over 70-year-old is undiminished and as awe-inspiring as ever. At tournaments with numerous entrants, the naturalized Swiss citizen leaves world-class players young enough to be his grandchildren far behind him.

It is high time therefore, to update Victor Kortshnoi's autobiography Chess Is My Life, which met with great interest on its publication more than 20 years ago. In long interviews, Korchnoi has completely retold his life story. The memories of his childhood in the besieged Leningrad, his time as a student of the university of his hometown (now St. Petersburg), his rise to the top of the major chess power USSR and the years before and after his defection to the West in 1976 are also of significance as contemporary documents of a life spent in the former Soviet Union. The volume also includes many photographs as well as a number of games with comments in typical Korchnoi-style and which are of decisive importance in his brilliant chess career.
