'They were no longer partners keen to test out their abilities in lighthearted play; they were enemies bent on each other's destruction.'

When it is discovered that the reigning world chess champion, Mirko Czentovic, is on board a cruiser heading for Buenos Aires, a fellow passenger challenges him to a game. Czentovic easily defeats him, but during the rematch a mysterious Austrian, Dr B., intervenes and, to the surprise of everyone, helps the underdog obtain a draw. When, the next day, Dr B. confides in a compatriot travelling on the same ship and decides to reveal the harrowing secret behind his formidable chess knowledge, a chilling tale of imprisonment and psychological torment unfolds.

Stefan Zweig's last and most famous story, 'The Game of Chess' was written in exile in Brazil and explores its author's anxieties about the situation in Europe following the rise of the Nazi regime. The tale is presented here in a brand-new translation, along with three of the master storyteller's most acclaimed novellas: 'Twenty-four Hours in the Life of a Woman', 'The Invisible Collection' and 'Incident on Lake Geneva'.

Conversations is a compilation of twenty monologues that were written over the course of several years. Originally titled Conversations While Dining Alone, these were actually created while I was dinging alone. They were performed as a monologue play and the reviewer called the evening "A mosaic of the human heart." I explain how the work was originated staged in the book. It is a theater piece that can be done with 20 actors, or two. I hope you enjoy the works.
