An interesting read,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Italian Neighbors: Or, A Lapsed Anglo-Saxon in Verona (Taschenbuch)
As a Brit having lived in Italy many years ago, I always like to take the opportunity to return there even though I am at present just an armchair traveller. Tim Parks writes a witty and interesting story and gives insight to the inner workings of the bureacracy and the "system". The trials and tribulations of everyday life are well chronicled including the hysterial neighbor and the barking dog. At times I wish the author had "opened the door a little wider" by telling us what he had when he dined out and just a few more titbits about his personal life. He leaves it to the reader to surmise that his wife is actually an Italian. I highly recommend the book and can't wait to read the sequel. Enjoy it!
