Italian Education by Tim Parks

Book Description

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.

Books By Author Tim Parks

Calm by Tim Parks Calm, Paperback (June 2017)

How do we find calm in our frantic modern world? The author - lifelong cynic and spirituality-sceptic - finds himself on a Buddhist meditation retreat trying to answer this very question. With brutal honesty and dry wit, he recounts his journey from disbelief to inner peace and tackles one of the great mysteries of our time.

In Extremis by Tim Parks In Extremis, Hardback (March 2017)

Thomas knows there is something he needs to say to his mother before she dies. But will he reach her in time? And will he have the courage to say what he couldn't say before? His phone is buzzing, his mind is racing, and he can't concentrate on the significance of what is happening. Should he try to solve his friend's family crisis?

Thomas and Mary by Tim Parks Thomas and Mary, Paperback (February 2017)

Thomas and Mary have been married for thirty years. They have two children, a dog, a house in the suburbs. But after years of drifting apart, things - finally - come to a head. This title recounts what happens when youthful devotion has long given way to dog walking, separate bed times, and tensions over who left the fridge door open.
