I've just finished reading "The Queen's Gambit" by Walter Tevis. This novel was first published in 1983. I have not read any of his other works previously.
This is the best book that I have read in a very long time. I'm not here to review it, or give out plot details. If you are looking for a book that will move you, I highly recommend reading this one.
Look into reading this book. Here are some links to more info.
