Bobby Fischer was the most brilliant chess player in history. A grandmaster at 15 and world champion at 29. He was a genius tactician and ruthless competitor. He was also a paranoid who had the fillings in his teeth removed because he thought the Soviet Union was transmitting damaging rays into his brain.

In a gripping true story set during the height of the Cold War, American chess prodigy Fischer finds himself caught between two superpowers when he challenges the Soviet Empire. Pawn Sacrifice chronicles Fischer’s terrifying struggles with genius and madness, and the rise and fall of a kid from Brooklyn who captured the imagination of the world.
