A much sought after book.

For fans of The Queen's Gambit, this is the real life story of a female chess champion travelling the world to compete in a maledominated sport with the most famous players of all time.Jennifer Shahade, a twotime US Women's Chess Champion, spent her teens and twenties travelling the world playing chess.

Tournaments have taken her from Istanbul to Moscow, and introduced her to players from Zambia to China. In this ultra male dominated sport, Jennifer found shocking sexism, but she also found friendships, feminism and hope.

Through her own story as well as interviews with international players, Jennifer invites us into the extremely competitive world of chess. She shows us the rivalry and the camaraderie; the ecstatic highs and the excruciating losses, the glamour and the hard work. She describes the coach who told her that her period will affect her standard of play, and gives us thrilling blow by blow accounts of the matches that made history.

Intertwined with Jennifer's own story are those of the top female players from around the world. We meet the famous Polgar sisters, the three Hungarian girls who were all child prodigies; we meet the glamorous jet setters who travel the world partying, and the players who escaped wartorn countries to become champions against the odds.

Chess Queens is a fascinating glimpse into the exhilarating world of chess and an essential book for all the aspiring chess queens of today.

Softback, 390 pages.
