A Season with Verona

A Season with Verona

Author(s): Tim Parks

Location(s): Italy

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs, Travelogue

Era(s): 2000-2001

A diary account for football fans and lovers of Italy…

Is Italy a united country, or a loose affiliation of warring states? Is Italian football a sport, or an ill-disguised protraction of ancient enmities?

Tim Parks goes on the road to follow the fortunes of Hellas Verona football club, to pay a different kind of visit to some of the world’s most beautiful cities. This is a highly personal account of one man’s relationship with a country, its people and its national sport. A book that combines the pleasures of travel writing with a profound analysis of one country’s mad, mad way of keeping itself entertained.
