"In the bestselling ITALIAN NEIGHBOURS, Tim Parks explores the idiosyncrasies and nuances of Italian culture. When Parks moved to Italy he found it irresistible; this book is a testament to his love of Italy and his attention to the details of everyday Italian life. ITALIAN NEIGHBOURS is travel writing at its best; infused with an objective passion and an eye for the details and the peculiarities of culture."

"A clever, entertaining book...charged with a sense of purpose" * Sunday Times * "Gradually he comes to accept what the locals take for granted: everybody likes the Pope, racism thrives, the barber is a faith healer, the bank manager asks what interest rate you want to pay and the devoted church-going pharmacist upholds Catholicism on a Sunday but shows commercial flair the rest of the week by selling cut-price condoms... A rich treat from start to finish" * Sunday Express * "Tough, funny and sceptical" * Tatler *
