A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

In a game where the chess board's strongest piece the Queen is often referred to as a bitch, and where being female has been long considered a major disadvantage, this eye-opening account shows how young female chess players are successfully knocking down the doors to this traditionally male game.

From the Publisher:

"One woman’s fascinating true story of the life of a champion chess player. All women should take up the challenge and pick up a board! Chess anyone?" —Yoko Ono

"With crisp prose and a hypnotic rhythm, Shahade runs us through a vast range of colorful, affirming characters. Chess Bitch is a worldwide trot in search of a common humanity, a precise critique and a wild ride that transcends its own subject." —J.C. Hallman, author of The Chess Artist: Genius, Obsession, and the World’s Oldest Game

"She speaks playfully and provocatively on chess as meditation, as art and as philosophy ...how passion can be more interesting than genius, and the importance of sexy."—The Philadelphia Independent
