Sein Feld  Continues.

Filed under: General — m759 @ 5:08 AM

Dialogue from the recent Netflix series “Queen’s Gambit” —

Miss Jean Blake, interviewer from LIFE  — “The board?”

Beth Harmon — “Yes. It’s an entire world
of just 64 squares. I feel safe in it. I can control it.
I can dominate it. And it’s predictable, so if I get hurt,
I only have myself to blame.”

This passage, and other psychological claptrap in the Netflix version,
does not occur in the original 1983 novel by Walter Tevis.
