Lingue di fuoco by Tim Parks

George Crawley has finally got his life running along satisfyingly straight lines. Having made a success of his career and saved his faltering marriage, he is secure in the belief that he is master of his own destiny. Longlisted for the Dolman Travel Book Award. In 1981 Tim Parks moved from England to Italy and spent the next thirty years alongside hundreds of thousands of Italians on his adopted country's vast, various and ever-changing networks of trains. Through memorable encounters with ordinary Italians - conductors and ticket collectors, priests and prostitutes, scholars and lovers, gypsies and immigrants - Tim Parks captures what makes Italian life distinctive.

Tim Parks, the author the best selling book Italian Neighbors has written a new book: Italian Ways: On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo. Being someone who, like Parks, lives in Italy and has more than a little experience of Italy’s railway system, I was curious to discover what Parks’ had to say about it – so I got hold of a copy of his latest book. It’s well worth a read, especially if you might be considering moving to Italy, or if you are brave enough to consider setting up a business here, or, for that matter, even considering doing business in Italy

Author, Translator, Essayist. Curiously, as a result of writing this book, I have been invited to be curator of an exhibition on banking in fifteenth century Florence which will be held at Palazzo Strozzi in 2010. It will be an exciting challenge to turn narrative and ideas into something visual.

Tim Parks lifts his project head and shoulders above so many of the books turned out by similar writers of his age and stage. Photograph: Alex Macnaughton, Rex Features. I would never have gone to a shrink in Edinburgh. The book is full of these kinds of introversions, questions about words and intentions. Parks, by being funny, explodes all that. So one can forgive the presence throughout the story, at the end of the telephone line, of that standard appendage of the white middle-class, middle-aged man in crisis novel: the athletic and beautifully proportioned younger woman who is there to adore him. She is waiting for him, literally, at the end of the story, between freshly laundered sheets – starched, in fact.

An Italian Education. How does an Italian become Italian? Or an Englishman English, for that matter? Are foreigners born, or made? In An Italian Education 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.
