The December 2022 Books and Bagels read is The World Played Chess, by Robert Dugoni. In 1979, Vincent Bianco has just graduated high school, and takes a summer construction job to earn money before college. Little does he imagine what his co-workers, two traumatized Vietnam vets, will teach him about breaking away, shaping a life, and seeking one's own destiny. Forty years later, these lessons resurface as Vincent sees his own son off to college. A coming-of-age story and, obliquely, a Vietnam story, this is another can't-miss read from the acclaimed author.
