Me too but since 4 airplane tickets and 3 weeks in my favorite part of Italy are not in the cards this Summer I have a secret on how you can get there. Tim parks is very talented at capturing what it would be like to live, eat, drink, love and be in Italy. He takes you on a journey in 2 novels that are absolutely extraordinary. I love Italy with all of the customs, superstitions, and traditions, along with the ritual of coffee that they (me) still all do and believe in.
Tim is amazing at getting this across and his journey is very authentic. This is truly the next best thing to boarding a plane and 12K later. So give yourself the gift of exploring Italy this Summer via Tim Parks with these 2 fascinating novels (Italian Neighbors and An Italian Education) that will enlighten you to how Italians Think, Love, Raise Children, Eat, Drink, and Live La Dolce Vita!
