Bobby Fischer in Iceland
When I moved to New York, I met many chess players who had played Fischer or played in tournaments where Fischer player people on his level. Let's just say that very few of them missed "our Bobby"—but they sure talked about him.
The fabulous Bog of a Bookslut linked to this recollection of his final days in Reykjavik. I believe this is the only place that recorded Fischer's last words, which are pretty touching coming from such a prickly character.
