Italian Ways: On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo by Tim Parks.
The best-selling author celebrated for his books on life in Italy returns with his first Italian travelogue in a decade.
Parks travels by train all over Italy, from north to south, painting a humourous and insightful picture of Italian society and the colourful characters he meets along the way.
As Parks states in the book, "To see the country by train is to consider the crux of the essential Italian dilemma: Is Italy part of the modern world, or not?"
