Please join us for a celebration of Antonio Tabucchi’s Time Ages in a Hurry at Community Bookstore in Brooklyn, Thursday, April 30 @ 7 pm! The evening will feature a conversation with author Lynne Sharon Schwartz and translators Martha Cooley and Antonio Romani.

Antonio Tabucchi (1943-2012) is one of Italy’s most original and admired writers. The nine stories in Time Ages in a Hurry are imaginative inquiries into things hidden or disguised. Each protagonist must confront phantoms from the past, misguided beliefs, and puzzles of identity.
