Beschrijving

"Chess Bitch is enlightening to read-eloquent, playful, and beautifully written-an in-depth look at how several generations of women have cut their own paths in the world of chess, jennifer Shahade has a gift for incisive portraiture, and her vivid account of chess stars past and present is lit with a lovely clarity of judgement. This is an amazing, pioneering book about genuine pioneers."
Joan Silber, author of Ideas of Heaven (2004 National Book Award finalist)

"With crisp prose and a hypnotic rhythm, Shahade runs is through a vast range of colorful, affirming characters. Chess Bitch is a worldwide trot in search of a common humanity, aprecise critique and a wild ride that transcends its own subject".
J.c. Hallman, author of the Chess Artist: Genius, Obsession, and the World' Oldest Game

"An absorbing account of the women who have infiltrated the male arena of championship chess, Jennifer captures what it's like to be afemale in the chess world, the passion we have for the game, and for winning".
Irina Krush, International Master and 1998 US Women's Champion

"She speaks playfully and provocatively on chess as meditation, as art and as philosophy...how passion can be more interesting than genius, and the importance of sexy".
The Philadelphia Independent

"Jennifer is so down to earth, so much "one of us", that it is easy to forget you are talking to an award-winning, Olympics-competing champ".
Bust Magazine

"...the strongest America-born woman chessplayer ever".
Smithsonian Magazine

"In every generation a book comes along that shows us who we are and where we are going. This is that book for chess. With insight and artistry, Jennifer Shahade unravels the war between the sexes, on and off the board, Chess Bitch reveals the truth in a way no chess book ever has".
Bruce Pandolfini, author and featured character (played by Ben Kingsley) in Searching for Bobby Fischer

"Jennifer Shahade's writing is as powerful and fearless as her chess''.
Paul Hoffman, author of The Man Who Loved Only Numbers and Wings of Madness
