The life of Bobby Fischer (1943-2008) had many unexpected moves-from his solitary childhood to his stratospheric accomplishments in the world of competitive chess- and eventually- his decent into mental illness and disgrace. By the time Fischer was a teen- he had established himself as a loner and dropped out of school. But none of that mattered; he had found his true calling-chess. In 1972- Fischer played what many consider 'the game of the century' against the Soviet Union's chess champion Boris Spassky at the height of the Cold War. Later- Fischer became the youngest-ever US Chess Champion and the game's youngest grandmaster. Never before had chess received such international attention. Fischer- whose sole focus in life up until then was chess- reached the Olympus of chess at 29- and then... he disappeared. Suffering from mental illness- the chess genius became increasingly paranoid- lost in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories-despite the fact that he himself was Jewish-and died as a fugitive in Iceland. With Black & White- author Julian Voloj and illustrator Wagner Willian have crafted a beautiful and fascinating work that reveals Fischer's history while also contextualizing his lasting impact on culture.

bindery defects like minor to moderate corner tears, white along the edge of the spine, covers that are offset from the pages (common on cardstock covers) - bindery defects may not affect the grade much if at all

printing defects like a slight color rubs on the back covers, small wrinkles in the paper that were present on the paper rolls prior to the books being printed, paper that is "wavy" from the printing process

2 - 3 small color breaking spine dings or minor non color breaking spine dings
