If you enjoy memoirs, check out Sasha Chapin and “All the Wrong Moves: A Memoir about Chess, Love, and Ruining Everything” at Book Soup. This book traces Chapin’s rollicking two-year journey around the globe in search of glory. Sasha Chapin is a victim of chess. Like countless amateurs before him–Albert Einstein, Humphrey Bogart, Marcel Duchamp–the game has consumed his life and his mind. First captivated by it as a member of his high school chess club, his passion was rekindled during an accidental encounter with chess hustlers on the streets of Kathmandu. In its aftermath, he forgot how to care about anything else.
