Wonderful remembrance of Bobby Fischer in the NYT Mag. The writing is just about as striking as Fischer’s playing.
I agree, that was spectacular. Among the other highlights of the obits issue were the memorials to Levi Stubbs and Dee Dee Warwick and Harriet McBryde Johnson. Also, I read the issue on my cell phone, so I was surprised to pull up my laptop and find that the wonderful eulogy of the Polaroid wasn’t one of the obits.
