Chess game

"Stupefied and lethargic in the heat, I sat and watched a sort of closely choreographed, three-dimensional chess game, in which the pieces on the board were children and grandparents, food and drinks, chairs and laundry, toys and the telephone - but only one player, my son, moving pieces in all directions with both hands and feet, in a continuous play of astonishing intricacy and virtuosity."
