An Italian Education: The Further Adventures of an Expatriate in Verona

Tim Parks (Author)
Available

Description

Tim Parks's best seller, Italian Neighbors, offered a sparkling, witty, and acutely observed account of an expatriate's life in a small village outside of Verona. Now in An Italian Education, Parks continues his chronicle of adapting to Italian society and culture, while raising his Italian-born children. With the exquisite eye for detail, character, and intrigue that has brought him acclaim as a novelist, Parks creates an enchanting portrait of Italian parenthood and family life at home, in the classroom, and at church. Shifting from hilarity to despair in the time it takes to sing a lullaby, Parks learns that to be a true Italian, one must live by the motto "All days are one."
