Chess passion: Mark Ozanne’s novel “Chess Fever”

Stefan Zweig’s “The Royal Game” and Vladimir Nabokov’s “Lushin’s Defence” are the best-known novels about the destructive power chess can have. In “Chess Fever”, a fine novel about youth, growing up, creativity and lots of chess, the English author Mark Ozanne describes the passion for the game in less sinister fashion, but much funnier and much closer to the mind of a chess player.
