Italian Ways: On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo

“A train is a train is a train, isn’t it?” Tim Parks may have thought that when he began his journey of traveling Italy by rail, but he soon came to realize that train travel not only gave him incredible views of the cities, towns, and countryside, but of the people of Italy as well. His encounters with conductors and ticket collectors, ordinary Italians and scholars, gave him a unique insight into Italian life. “This is the best book I’ve ever read about Italy. Never have I encountered a more insightful and hilarious insider/outsider portrait of the country at the center of Western civilization.” —Sean Wilsey, author of Oh the Glory of It All
