    Summary

    Что за глупости, разве не знаете, что моя жизнь — это шахматы? Можно ли взять и покончить с дыханием, бросить в коробку фигуры своей души? Эндшпиль стихии, в которой единственной ты существуешь, — вы можете это представить?

    Summary

    “What?” he asks, because Frederick is contemplating something to himself and struggling to make a choice.

    “After our rest day,” he says slowly, not looking at him in the eyes, “I’m going to play the King’s Indian Defense.”

    Summary

    Just in case things went wrong, or just in case he was sabotaged and needed an escape. He’d leave everything here behind and fly up to Canada in the many safehouses scattered across the country. He’d been honey trapping in America alone for only two years. It was too short of a time to judge anything, but the just in case scenarios turned into what if?

    What if he took the passport and fled the country anyhow, with no forewarning of his plan and no danger that could sway him with urgency?

    Summary

    At the lobby Anatoly asked: “Are you hungry? I think you’d like something more than just stale bread and tea, yeah?”

    “If it’s not too much trouble,” he said.

    “No, not too much. I’ll see what Yulia Alexandrovna has. Wait for me upstairs. You remember where my room is? Good. I will answer your question by the time I return. You’re a good reporter… it makes me hate you a little,” he said teasingly, and turned away just before Freddie was able to catch his smile.

    Summary

    Фредди всё ещё презирал русских (что никогда не могло измениться), а Сергиевский — всё ещё — едва ли владел и десятком английских слов. Вместе с тем Фредди должен был признаться в своей зарождающейся симпатии.

    Summary

    During the summer of 1987, Chess Life magazine sponsored their second-ever 10-day chess-themed cruise, both as a way to raise money for American chess efforts and as an opportunity to provide chess enthusiasts with a fun vacation tailored to their interests. On top of the luxury of the ship itself, they would be making stops in San Juan and Nassau.

    Freddie quickly accepted an invitation to attend as a guest and take part in the programming, on the condition that he would be supplied with an extra family suite along with his own room.

    Summary

    Except now, on top of Freddie's certainty that every move he makes and word he says and maybe thought he thinks is being tracked, he’s also really keyed into absolutely everything Anatoly does. And what does Anatoly do?

    He meets Freddie at the airport.

    Summary

    Svetlana shakes her head and lays down her next card. “You need to know how to play more than one game. It is an important part of learning how to be interesting.”

    Frederick scoffs, mock-affronted. “Are you saying I’m boring?”

    “I am saying this game was created by peasants,” she says, smiling enigmatically. “If they can understand it, so can you.”

    Summary

    “You did pretty well as a champion for a few years,” Freddie said. “I thought you would’ve made enough money.”

    “I’ve made enough when it’s decided there’s any value to it. You can measure the worth of a ruble by the damn minute these days.” He shook his head, crossed toward the couch. “I gave up my title a long time ago anyhow.”

    “I know, I saw.”

    “I still think about how Svetlana was right—or that I was simply stupid.”

    ———

    Summary

    They’d built this relationship on hesitance: the caresses, the peck on the cheek they each delivered with morning coffee, slowly entangling their legs as they shared the couch- it was all so dear to him it hurt, a new kind of pain. They were still learning. He was desperately afraid to misspeak.

    Summary

    "On the first day of class, we came into the room. There were only three of us. On his desk there was a yellow vase with blue flowers. He asked us what it was, and we said, 'Yellow blue vase,' of course. He said to us, 'That is almost "I love you" in Russian, and that is probably the most important phrase that I will teach you"
    (quoted in "Vladimir Nabokov at Wellesley," Wellesley Alumnae Magazine, Summer, 1971)

    Summary

    Freddie could boast to Florence about how he was right after all, but this was not something he felt good boasting about. He was right—but at what cost? The Soviet Union swallowed him and spat him back out, damaged.

    This wasn’t Anatoly. This was barely half of him.
