Prolific and prize-winning writer of novels, non-fiction and essays, Tim Parks, takes us on a train journey through Italy in his latest book, Italian Ways. It documents his encounters with ordinary, yet different Italians, from conductors to prostitutes, scholars to gypsies, and offers a snapshot of quintessential Italian life, as well as exploring the Italian relationship with trains and railways.  As an Englishman living in Italy, Parks has first-hand knowledge of the country and its people, and he employs this and his thirty years of experience to open up the ‘charmingly irritating dystopian paradise’ of the country in this entertaining adventure through modern Italy.
