Yesterday Autumn started officially and even though it’s definitely not yet autumn here in Italy (more summer I would say…) I still wanted to share a book tip with you for the autumn moments that will soon arrive. You know those days when it’s raining outside and the sky is grey and you really don’t want to go outside? Exactly, those days are perfect to spend at home on the couch reading a good book, don’t you agree? Well today a book tip for those days to come…
Tim Parks is a wonderful author that has the ability to write without judging. When I was still living in the Netherlands I already read his book “Italian Neighbors” which I absolutely loved. In his new book Italian Ways, On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo he writes about the Italian railways in a very realistic yet hilarious way! As I take the train myself everyday to go to work, more than once I was laughing out loud and totally recognizing his adventures with Trenitalia. It reveals the Italian mentality in a striking way! For those interested in Italy, its people and really want to know how Italy works this book is an absolute must!! So go to the bookstore to buy this delightful book…or order online if autumn already showed his face….
