    Searching for Bobby Fischer is the story of Fred Waitzkin and his son, from the moment six-year-old Josh first sits down at a chessboard until he competes for the national championship. Drawn into the insular, international network of chess, they must also navigate the difficult waters of their own relationship. All the while, Waitzkin searches for the elusive Bobby Fischer, whose myth still dominates the chess world and profoundly affects Waitzkin’s dreams for his son.

    The Last Marlin is an unforgettable memoir of growing up in the 50s. Young Fred is a Jewish boy stretched between the divergent values of parents who cannot tolerate one another. Fred's father, Abe, is a talented salesman whose relentless will drives him to succeed, whatever the cost. He marries Stella, an abstract artist, but also the daughter of a wealthy industrialist. When the marriage flounders, Fred's world is assaulted, and he must negotiate the tense family divide.
