    actually a review of 19th century French novelists

    though they are probably more philosophically and aesthetically significant than than a chronicling of Soviet chess events, it is
    nevertheless slightly disappointing fram a chess perspective. I suppose the free nookbook "The Life of Philidor , musician and chess player" does seem even more interesting now ... perhaps a backdoor attempt to sneak some culture into the life of otherwise dreary chess-obsessed individuals otherwise content to spend hours poring over soviet chess theory and activities(?)
