The Queen's Gambit

Now a Major Netflix Drama

SOON TO BE A MAJOR NETFLIX SERIES starring Anya Taylor-Joy (Emma, The Miniaturist, Peaky Blinders) from Academy-Award nominee Scott Frank (Out of Sight, Minority Report, Marley & Me) and BAFTA nominee Allan Scott

'Superb' Time Out
'Sheer entertainment. It is a book I reread every few years - for the pure pleasure and skill of it' Michael Ondaatje
'Don't pick this up if you want a night's sleep' Scotsman

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.
