Time's A ThiefBook - 2017
"Francesca 'Chess' Varani is an ultra-bright, sassy, but vulnerable Barnard freshwoman from a blue-collar background in the vibrantly gritty New York City of the mid-eighties. She strikes up a volatile and somewhat toxic friendship with drama-queen classmate Kendra Marr-L©œwenstein, and falls into the bewitching orbit of her Salingeresque, high-toned family ... The story is related by Chess in sadder but wiser fashion from the distance of a financially beset 2008 and the depths of a crap job taken of necessity, tinged with the poignancy of time and choices made and not made"--Amazon.com.
