Inhaltsangabe:

From the author of THE HUSTLER, THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT is a modern classic about a troubled chess prodigy and her battle to survive

When she is sent to an orphanage at the age of eight, Beth Harmon soon discovers two ways to escape her surroundings, albeit fleetingly: playing chess and taking the little green pills given to her and the other children to keep them subdued. Before long, it becomes apparent that hers is a prodigious talent, and as she progresses to the top of the US chess rankings she is able to forge a new life for herself. But she can never quite overcome her urge to self-destruct .

For Beth, there's more at stake than merely winning and losing.

Review: Gripping reading . . . Nabokov's The Defense and Zweig's The Royal Game are the classics. Now joining them is The Queen's Gambit (FINANCIAL TIMES)

The Queen's Gambit is sheer entertainment. It is a book I reread every few years - for the pure pleasure and skill of it (Michael Ondaatje)

Mesmerizing (NEWSWEEK)

Don't pick this up if you want a night's sleep (SCOTSMAN)

More exciting than any thriller I've seen lately; more than that, beautifully written (Martin Cruz Smith)

What Walter Tevis did for pool in The Hustler, he does for chess in The Queen's Gambit (PLAYBOY)

A psychological thriller (NEW YORK TIMES)
