Description

Now a major Netflix series starring Anya Taylor-Joy from Academy-Award nominee Scott Frank and BAFTA nominee Allan Scott

Time Out : ‘Superb’
Newsweek: ‘Mesmerizing’
Financial Times: ‘Gripping’
Michael Ondaatje : ‘Sheer entertainment. It is a book I reread every few years – for the pure pleasure and skill of it’
Scotsman : ‘Don’t pick this up if you want a night’s sleep’

When she is sent to an orphanage at the age of eight, Beth Harmon soon discovers two ways to escape her surroundings, albeit fleetingly: playing chess and taking the little green pills given to her and the other children to keep them subdued. Before long, it becomes apparent that hers is a prodigious talent, and as she progresses to the top of the US chess rankings she is able to forge a new life for herself. But she can never quite overcome her urge to self-destruct. For Beth, there’s more at stake than merely winning and losing.
