Thanks to our friends at Harvill Secker we’ve got 5 copies of Tim Parks’ new book Italian Ways to give away to members of our Book Club.

For your chance to win one, you just need to:

  2. email with ‘Italian Ways’ in the subject line by 5pm Friday 20th June (extended deadline).

Here’s the blurb:

From the bestselling author of Italian NeighboursAn Italian Education and A Season with Verona, comes a journey around Italy by train, full of humorous and insightful observations on what the railways and their travellers reveal about the country. 

Tim Parks moved to Italy in 1981, where he has lived ever since with his Italian wife and three children.  His highly personal non-fiction accounts of life in northern Italy – Italian NeighboursAn Italian Education, and A Season with Verona – won him acclaim and popularity, and all three are bestsellers.

In Italian Ways Tim Parks returns gloriously to the subject matter of his adopted homeland, and offers us a fresh portrait of Italy today through a wry account of its train system. Parks uses his thirty years of amusing and maddening experiences on Italian trains to reveal what he calls this ‘charmingly irritating dystopian paradise’. For anyone who has ever been enchanted by Italy or dreamed of visiting, Italian Ways is a perfect companion.
