The King, the Queen, and the Puny Pawns
Nina Schuyler
9 Installments

In this charming tale of love, chess, and Marxism, a chance encounter in a cooking class leads to an unlikely affair between the revolutionary daughter of immigrants and a San Francisco aristocrat. Drawn together by their shared passion for chess, the two young women, Junko and Madeline, seem perfectly paired as both competitors and lovers. But as Junko is pulled further into Madeline's world of privilege, she begins to lose hold not only of her own ideals, but of her instinct for the next right move. By turns funny and sad, with a beautifully bittersweet ending, "The King, The Queen, and the Puny Pawns" is, at heart, a love letter to the disappearing middle class.
