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 technology 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 myth inquiétante, fantastique, qui, comme le dit un personnage avec une ironie douloureuse, « pourrait servir d’illustration à los angeles charmante époque où nous vivons ».

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