General Note:
Originally published under title: Italian neighbors, or, A lapsed Anglo-Saxon in Verona.
Summary, etc.:
In this seductive account of an Italian neighborhood with a statue of the Virgin at one end of the street, a derelict bottle factory at the other, and a wealth of exotic flora and fauna in between, novelist Tim Parks celebrates ten years of living with his wife in Verona, Italy. More than a travel book, this is a tale of how the most curious people and places gradually assume the familiarity of home, a work that manages to be both a portrait and an invitation for everyone who has ever dreamed about Italy.--From publisher description.
