About The Chessmen
Sonny Wakefield is riding a rocket in the summer of ’62, before his senior year of high school. Playing trumpet for The Chessmen brings him face to face with the adult world of bars, violence, and his first chaotic excursions into sex. Is he a pawn among the broken lives he encounters, or the knight he hopes to be?
Set in Dundalk and Baltimore City, Maryland, The Chessmen is Michael Wright’s second novel after Down the Ocean: Summer of ’64.
Michael Wright is an avid explorer dedicated to examining what makes humans so truly wondrous and downright contrary at the same time. His works range from novels and plays to poetry and performance art/spoken word—experiments beyond the merely possible. Michael was the 2010 Playwriting Teacher of the Year for the Association for Theatre in Higher Education and winner of the Kennedy Center 2011 Milan Stitt award for outstanding teaching and professional work in playwriting.
