Join us for an Italian-themed literary lunch at the Olive Tree Restaurant, as Tim Parks shares his humorous observations of the ‘charmingly irritating dystopian paradise’ that is Italy. Distilled from his thirty years of amusing, maddening experiences on trains and as an Italian by adoption, Tim Parks has a sharp eye for the idiosyncrasies that capture the wider culture.
As you enjoy a glass of prosecco and a delicious three-course meal, Tim Parks will offer us a fresh portrait of modern Italy, told with the wry humour for which he’s best known. A seasoned rail traveller and a fantastic storyteller, he is perfectly-placed to capture the essence of this baffling and endearing country in his new book, Italian Ways.
The £48 tickets include lunch for one person and one copy of the book. The £80 tickets include lunch for two people and one copy of the book.
