Description

'Parks...offers detailed cultural observation, witty yet eagle-eyed, of what makes Italians so Italian' The Times

How does Italy really work?


When Valeria travels from hot, dusty Basilicata to begin her studies in a northern university town, she has little idea of the kind of education she will find there. Italian Life is her story, and that of the students and professors around her: a story of power and corruption, influence and exclusion, and the workings of a society where your connections are everything .

Written with flair and insight, Italian Life joins Tim Parks' bestselling books about his beloved and paradoxical adopted country. It is a gripping, entertaining, behind-the-scenes account of how Italy actually happens, and the ways it can surprise those who know it inside out.

'A satisfyingly truthful, entertaining and provocative comedy' Daily Telegraph
