A Partial History of Lost Causes - Jennifer Dubois

A Partial History of Lost Causes (Dial, $16), by Jennifer Dubois, is an excellent debut novel in which a young American woman with an inherited fatal disease becomes linked to a world chess champion and opposition presidential candidate in Russia. Dubois tells the stories of the two protagonists, whose lives intersect across two countries and several decades, with compelling detail and language. Chess–and learning to beat long odds–is a subtext throughout, as are the political ramifications of the transition from Soviet leadership to Putin-style “democracy.”  Dubois is a smart and gifted writer.
