A Partial History of Lost Causes, by Jennifer du Bois.

After watching her father suffer from and linger long years with Huntington’s disease, then discovering she’s a carrier and will develop it as well, Irina decides she must make a  pilgrimage to Russia to visit a former chess prodigy to whom her father posed a profound question (How does one proceed in a lost cause?).
