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? After Twenty Years In The Bel Paese, 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, And To Get A Fresh Take On The Conundrum That Is National Character. From Udine To Catania, From The San Siro To The Olimpico, 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 Tension Of Cliff-Hanging Narrative With The Pleasures Of Travel Writing, And The Stimulation Of A Profound Analysis Of One Country'S Mad, Mad Way Of Keeping Itself Entertained. This 2003 Vintage Paperback is in Good condition.
