Time's a Thief out in Paperback on April 3rd!



I'm thrilled to report that my novel, Time's a Thief, will be out in paperback on April 3rd from Penguin Random House's Anchor Books. My thanks again to everyone there. 

Lovely blurb from Dana Spiotta: "This bittersweet, funny, and bighearted book is also a beautiful, precise elegy to a wilder, more alive New York where anything seemed possible."

“Tell us about your Italianness, and how it’s influenced your writing journey”


At my grandparents' house in Kennett Square, 
many, many years before I published my first novel.

What a pleasure to be interviewed about my novel, Time's a Thief, by Sonya Chung for Bloom, a website “devoted to highlighting, profiling, reviewing, and interviewing authors whose first major work was published when they were age 40 or older.” My thanks to Sonya and everyone there. 

Read the interview, “False Starts, Restarts & Dreaming: Q & A with B.G. Firmani,” here.
