Endgame is acclaimed biographer Frank Brady’s decades-in-the-making tracing of the meteoric ascent- and confounding descent – of enigmatic genius Bobby Fischer. Only Brady, who met Fischer when the prodigy was ten years old and shared with him some of his most dramatic triumphs, could have written this book, which has much to say about the nature of American celebrity and the distorting effects of fame.

Drawing from Fischer family archives, recently released FBI files, and Bobby’s own e-mails, this account is unique in that it limns Fischer’s entire life – an odyssey that took the Brooklyn-raised chess champion from an improverished childhood to the covers of Time, Life, and Newsweek to recognition as “the most famous man in the world” to notorious recluse.

At first, all one noticed was how gifted Fischer was. Prossessing an QI of 181 and remarkable powers of concentration, bobby memorized hundreds of chess books in serverla language, and he was only thirteen when he became the youngest chess master in U.S history. But his strange behavior started early. IN 1972, at the historic Cold War showdown in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he faced Soviet champion Boris Spassky, Fischer made headlines with hundreds of petty demands that nearly ended the competition.
