Description de l'ouvrage

23 avril 2001

"Am I giving the impression that I don't like the Veneto? It's not true. I love it. But like any place that's become home I hate it too."

How does an Englishman cope when he moves to Italy - not the tourist idyll but the real Italy? When Tim Parks first moved to Verona he found it irresistible and infuriating in equal measure; this book is the story of his love affair with it. Infused with an objective passion, he unpicks the idiosyncrasies and nuances of Italian culture with wit and affection. Italian Neighbours is travel writing at its best.

Revue de presse

"A clever, entertaining book...charged with a sense of purpose" (Sunday Times)

"Gradually he comes to accept what the locals take for granted: everybody likes the Pope, racism thrives, the barber is a faith healer, the bank manager asks what interest rate you want to pay and the devoted church-going pharmacist upholds Catholicism on a Sunday but shows commercial flair the rest of the week by selling cut-price condoms... A rich treat from start to finish" (Sunday Express)

"Tough, funny and sceptical" (Tatler)

'I recommend his book to all those who are fed up with accounts of roughing it agreeably in Tuscany and similar junk that scarcely scratches the surface of the real Italy' Daily Telegraph

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Proprio cosi! 7 août 2005
Par Ms. Erin D. Buttermore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Sheer brilliance! Tim Parks has an utterly realistic outlook on the romantic ideal of settling in Italy as a foreigner. He clearly loves the country he has chosen as his home, but remains exasperated by its bureaucracy and its peculiar cultural quirks. This non-fictional tale reads like a novel. It is full of dark humour, cynicism and a touch of the epicure.

I was sent this book as I struggled through a year's study in Italy, wondering what on earth had made me go there. The insights offered by Tim Parks allowed me to accept my Italian experience for what it was, 'a package deal.'

My copy is battered, underlined in places and thoroughly appreciated. My Italian friends hate it, mostly because it is so accurate.

I am very disappointed to see it is now out of print. It should be required reading for anyone who is going to Italy!

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed and interesting. There is an underlying story with many vignettes which all share a gentle humour.
