AN extraordinary insight into Italy - a rare treat,
This review is from: The Dark Heart of Italy (Paperback)
As an Anglo Italian I was really impressed at how Tobias Jones - in just 4 years - has got a handle on Italian life and politics - he pulls off a difficult feat - an expose of Italian politics without descending into mockery or platitudes. His chapter on "Parole" or words - will have any Italian speaker in stitches.
I loved this book and unlike Tim Parks' writing, it never descends into sterotypes. If you are interested in Italy it is a must read
