Version enrichie (préface, notes, biographie de l'écrivain, bibliographie)

Qui est cet inconnu able d’en remontrer au grand Czentovic, champion mondial des échecs, véritable prodige aussi fruste qu’antipathique ? Peut-on le croire, quand il affirme qu’il n’a pas joué depuis plus de vingt ans ? Les circonstances dans lesquelles l’homme a acquis cette technological know-how sont terribles. Elles nous renvoient aux expérimentations nazies sur les effets de l’isolement absolu, lorsque, aux frontières de l. a. folie, entre deux interrogatoires, le cerveau humain parvient à déployer ses facultés les plus étranges. Une delusion inquiétante, fantastique, qui, comme le dit un personnage avec une ironie douloureuse, « pourrait servir d’illustration à l. a. charmante époque où nous vivons ».

Traduction, préface et commentaires par Brigitte Vergne-Cain et Gérard Rudent.
