Product description

Review

"Spot-on - a very accurate, very entertaining and at the same time rather profound book" (Daily Telegraph)

"Parks is more than just an effortless raconteur playing for laughs...he offers detailed cultural observation, witty yet eagle-eyed, of what makes Italians so Italian" (The Times)

"Tim Parks is Italian enough to understand the country, foreign enough to see its peculiarities and talented enough to make them funny without resorting to cliché" (Daily Express)

Synopsis

How does an Italian become Italian? Or an Englishman English, for that matter? Are foreigners born, or made? In this irresistible sequel to his bestselling Italian Neighbours, Tim Parks focuses on his own young children in the small village near Verona where he lives, building a fascinating picture of the contemporary Italian family at school, at home, at work and at play. The result is a delight: at once a family book and a travel book, not quite enamoured with either children or Italy, but always affectionate, always amused and always amusing.
