Subject
The 1851 Anderssen-Kieseritzky chess game (The Defense)
Date
Body
I see the NYTimes Book Review of Sept 10, 2006, p 35 in a revirw of Davod Shenk mentions his discussion of the above game ("The Immortal") which VN mentiuons in his introduction to THE DEFENSE. I and others have discussed the relevance of thsi game to the novel. It might be worthwhile to look at the discussion in Shenk's book. Comments appreciated.
