Review quote

"Duchamp Versus Einstein is a marvellously crafted amalgam of art, science and chess, surely no easy task. The tale weaves 20th-century history together with the thread of present-day human predicament. It's your move." "A luminous game of chess between art and science that is played across the page with lethal precision." "Deeply engaging, and cleverly weaves history and chess into a thought provoking tale!" "A thought-provoking read, and at the same time an expansion of chess endgame theory! Only Einstein could save an endgame with just a king against king and queen!"
