The World Played Chess

written by

Robert Dugoni




In 1979, Vincent Bianco has just graduated high school. His only desire: collect a little beer money and enjoy his final summer before college. So he lands a job as a laborer on a construction crew. Working alongside two Vietnam vets, one suffering from PTSD, Vincent gets the education of a lifetime. Now forty years later, with his own son leaving for college, the lessons of that summer—Vincent’s last taste of innocence and first taste of real life—dramatically unfold in a novel about breaking away, shaping a life, and seeking one’s own destiny.

For those ambitious readers: Our next reads following The World Played Chess is:

The Girl in His Shadow by Audrey Blake

We Are Not Like Them by Christine Pride and Jo Piazza
