    Walter Tevis was my favorite teacher at Ohio University. He was a brilliant and enthusiastic man. I’ve read The Hustler, The Man who Fell to Earth and Mockingbird. The first two are classics, the latter deserves more recognition. Too bad I dropped Netflix streaming.

    I agree. Worth watching.

    As a chess player, it is real music to my ears to hear the words “Sicilian Defense” and “Ruy Lopez” on TV. The series captures the monomania present in many great chessplayers, particularly evident in the lives of Alexander Alekhine and Bobby Fischer.

    In case you’re interested here are analyses of two of the games from the series, including the finale. Not definitive, I don’t think. From a popular YouTube chess channel.

    Here’s a 1983 interview with Walter Tevis about The Queen’s Gambit. Insightful and entertaining. He died in 1984.
