Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"All Italy is here, its history, its character, its flaws" (Sunday Times)

"A treat equivalent to a ride on the Orient Express" (Wall Street Journal)

"Like the best train journeys, you don't want it to end" (New Statesman)

"A very funny hosanna to Italian railroad locomotion in all its rackety glory" (Evening Standard, Books of the Year)

"Parks has the keenest of eyes for the telling of amusing detail ... He remains the best interpreter of Italian ways in Italy" (Sunday Herald)

"Tim Parks has written a book about Italian railways that is engrossing, entertaining, and wonderfully revealing about the country and its people. It makes perfect armchair travelling - a delight from beginning to end" (David Lodge)

"The book is, as Tim Parks says, a search for the Italian character, which he evokes in dozens of gorgeously written scenes; but beyond that Parks is exploring the dynamic between tradition and innovation... Underneath everything, Parks is trying to come to a point of loving the world in all its confusion and frustration, and by the book's end he does, he does. Bravo" (David Shields)

"This latest peg on which to hang another ruminative book about the character of Italy provides Parks with a first-class ticket to ride as a lively, erudite raconteur in salty daily negotiation with what he calls a 'dystopian paradise'" (Iain Finlayson The Times)

"With Paul Theroux apparently winding down, there might be an opening for Parks as a new laureate of international railways" (Andrew Martin Observer)

"Parks is also a railway enthusiast and this delightful book is the story of his love-hate relationship with Italian trains" (Literary Review)

Quatrième de couverture

'A search for the Italian character, which he evokes in dozens of gorgeously written scenes... Underneath everything, Parks is trying to come to a point of loving the world in all its confusion and frustration, and by book's end he does, he does. Bravo' David Shields

PRAISE FOR TIM PARKS

'Parks is an excellent writer, capable of writing wittily and with great beauty about the near indefinable' Sunday Telegraph

'A truly outstanding writer...immensely readable and deeply intelligent' Independent

'Parks is more than just an effortless raconteur playing for laughs...he offers detailed cultural observation, witty yet eagle-eyed, of what makes Italians so Italian' The Times
