Italian Ways

On and off the Rails from Milan to Palermo. Nominated for the Dolman Travel Book of the Year 2014

Brings us a fresh portrait of Italy through an account of author's train journeys around the country. This book explores how trains helped build Italy and how the railways reflect Italians' sense of themselves from Garibaldi to Mussolini to Berlusconi and beyond.

Portrait

Born in Manchester, Tim Parks grew up in London and studied at Cambridge and Harvard. In 1981 he moved to Italy where he has lived ever since. He is the author of novels, non-fiction and essays, including Europa, Cleaver, A Season with Verona and Teach Us to Sit Still. He has won the Somerset Maugham, Betty Trask and Llewellyn Rhys awards, and been shortlisted for the Booker Prize. He lectures on literary translation in Milan, writes for publications such as the New Yorker and the New York Review of Books, and his many translations from the Italian include works by Moravia, Calvino, Calasso, Tabucchi and Machiavelli.

Zitat

It is sharp-eyed and sharp-tongued about the absurdities of 'Italian ways'" -- John Lloyd Financial Times "A treat equivalent to a ride on the Orient Express" -- Ben Downing Wall Street Journal (Europe) "A hybrid of travel and cultural history.and very amusing it is too. Parks has done Lecce and all Italy proud in this eccentric hosanna to railroad locomotion" -- Ian Thomson Evening Standard "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
