En interessant liten bok om og med teamet rundt tidligere verdensmester Mikhail Tal, forfattet av hans gode venn fra unge år som siden også ble Tals sekundant fra 1968 til 76.

Forlagets egen omtale:

First published in Russian in 2016 and written by Valentin Kirillov – Mikhail Tal’s close friend, sparring partner, team member and second – this book of memoirs describes key events from Tal’s life, portrays his mentors and opponents, and reveals previously unknown facts and funny stories about the Magician of Riga.

A real collectors’ item for all true Tal fans, it provides color on Janis Kruzkops, who was Tal’s first coach and who died tragically young, Tal’s mentor Alexander Koblencs, and the chess masters to whom Tal was close, including Genna Sosonko, Aivars Gipslis, Janis Klovans, Alvis Vitolins, the young Alexei Shirov, and Kirillov himself, as well as the mysterious doctor Joseph Geikhman. It also traces the efforts of the Latvian chess community to preserve and build on Tal’s memory after his death, in particular with the attempt to establish a Tal museum and hold regular tournaments in his honor.

With a foreword to the English edition by Alexei Shirov.
