Tim Parks' first bestseller, Italian Neighbors, chronicled his initiation into Italian society and cultural life. Reviewers everywhere hailed it as a bravissimo performance. Now he turns to his children -- born and bred in Italy -- and their milieu in a small village near Verona. With the splendid eye for detail, character, and intrigue that has brought him acclaim as a novelist, he creates a fascinating portrait of Italian family life, at school, at home, in church, and in the countryside. This panoramic journey winds up with a deliciously seductive evocation of an Italian beach holiday that epitomizes everything that is quintessentially Italian. Here is an insider's Italy, re-created by "one of the most gifted writers of his generation" (Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post)

display_description From the author of Italian Neighbors, this is another sparkling account of Italian society and culture-this time focusing on all the little things that turn an ordinary newborn infant into a true Italiano. When British-born Tim Parks heard a mother at the beach in Pescara shout to her son, "Alberto, don't sweat! No you can't go in the sea till eleven, it's still too cold, go and see your cousin in row 3 number 52," he was inspired to write about parenting in Italy-which he was doing himself at the time after adopting the country as his own. In this humorous memoir, Parks immerses himself in family life at home, in the classroom, and at church, creating an enchanting portrait of Italian childhood that shifts from comedy to despair in the time it takes to sing a lullaby.
