Could you prepare an english version of this book? It would have a wider audience and the publisher may be more willing to foot the bill. Plus some of use would buy it - you can tell'em you've already got pre orders, and you'll be shopping it around at the Met.

The original is in English, its my masters thesis made into a book, but its still in academic language, its not been adapted and you need special skills to do that I reckon. I got the thesis translated by a professional into Italian and she adapted it as she went along. My Italian writing skills were not at that high enough level. It cost me 1000 euros but its worth it if I want to publish it here. I am doing this for the honour not money, I will make peanuts but that's not the point of it, I just want to be published. I was chuffed that they were interested in it to begin with.

oh that, well yes, obviously I do Rolling Eyes . Unfortunately in 1902 bustles were going out of fashion. Mad bloody modernists and their ankle showing.

This is so cute. Usually when kids come into environments dominated by adults they are treated gently, but it seems in chess tournaments it's typical for older players to playfully trash talk the kids they are playing against. Though I was a bit shocked at first I see that it builds up toughness against criticism and social distraction.

The clip below shows an absolutely adorable 9 year old girl pitted against a guy who looks to be in his 60's. The way his trash talk bounces off her almost makes me giggle. Behind them is a middle aged man going against a teenage boy, and you see much the same dynamic. It's lovely to see this mental resilience in the kids.
