Summary
English ex-pat Tim Parks (a resident in Italy since 1981) explores the wonderful, awful experience of traveling Italy with wry, insightful humor. Riding the rails from Italy top to bottom presents an up-close experiences of Italian life, past and present. With memorable vignettes of those he meets along the way (many of whom hate the train system) interspersed with railway history (he boards cars from pre-World War II, to modern high-speed ones), this entertaining travelogue delivers a slice of Italian culture at large. - Description by Dawn Towery
