Synopsis

 

The critically acclaimed novel from a master of contemporary American fiction—now available as an ebook

A story of genius, performance, and the psychological forces that drive the competitive spirit
 
Brian Stoppard is blessed with prodigious natural talents. Howard Cohen, less so. Starting in middle school in New York, Howard watches Brian effortlessly win at everything he tries: He’s a natural chess champion, a perfect athlete, a brilliant student. As the two move through life as friends and competitors, Brian’s easy success is a constant source of envy, awe, and inspiration for the ambitious but less-gifted Howard.
 
Told with great humor and style, The Game Player is a story of those born to greatness and those who must strive for it.
 
This ebook features a new illustrated biography of Rafael Yglesias, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
