Description : Read Now Italian Neighbors by Tim Parks and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a new york times notable book: a deliciously entertaining account of expatriate life in a small village just outside verona, italy. tim parks is anything but a gentleman in verona. so after ten years of living with his italian wife, rita, in an italian condominium bubbling with italian life around him, the novelist found that he had inadvertently collected a gallery full of splendid characters. in this wittily observed account, parks introduces readers to his home, a typical provincial 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. via colombre, the village’s main street, offers an exemplary hodgepodge of all that is new and old in the bel paese, a point of collision between invading suburbia and diehard peasant tradition in a sometimes madcap, sometimes romantic, always mixed-up world of creeping vines, stuccoed walls, shotguns, security cameras, hypochondria, and expensive sports cars. more than a mere travelogue, italian neighbors is a vivid portrait of the real italy and a compelling story of how even the most foreign people and places gradually assume the familiarity of home. “one of the most delightful travelogues imaginable . . . so vivid, so packed with delectable details.” —los angeles times book review

Description : Read Now An Italian Education by Tim Parks and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a “marvelous” mediterranean memoir of an expatriate father raising his children in italy (the washington post). from the author of italian neighbors, this is another sparkling account of italian society and culture—this time focusing on all the little things that turn an ordinary newborn infant into a true italiano. when british-born tim parks heard a mother at the beach in pescara shout to her son, “alberto, don’t sweat! no you can’t go in the sea till eleven, it’s still too cold, go and see your cousin in row 3 number 52,” he was inspired to write about parenting in italy—which he was doing himself at the time after adopting the country as his own. in this humorous memoir, parks immerses himself in family life at home, in the classroom, and at church, creating an enchanting portrait of italian childhood that shifts from comedy to despair in the time it takes to sing a lullaby. the result is “a wry, thoughtful, and often hilarious book . . . a parable of how our children, no matter what, are other than ourselves” (the new yorker). “glimpses of italy that are fond, critical, pithy and penetrating.” —the atlanta journal-constitution

Description : Read Now Teach Us To Sit Still by Tim Parks and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. "teach us to sit still is the visceral, thought-provoking, and inexplicably entertaining story of how tim parks found himself in serious pain, how doctors failed to help, and the quest he took to find his own way out. overwhelmed by a crippling conditionwhich nobody could explain or relieve, parks follows a fruitless journey through the conventional medical system only to find relief in the most unexpected place: a breathing exercise that eventually leads him to take up meditation. this was the very last place parks anticipated finding answers; he was about as far from new age as you can get. as everything that he once held true is called into question, parks confronts the relationship between his mind and body, the hectic modern world that seems to demand all our focus, and his chosen life as an intellectual and writer. he is drawn to consider the effects of illness on the work of other writers, the role of religion in shaping our sense of self, and the influence of sports and art on our attitudes toward health and well-being. most of us will fall ill at some point; few will describe that journey with the same verve, insight, and radiant intelligence as tim parks"--provided by publisher.

Description : Read Now Italy by Frederic Spotts and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. italy is the world's sixth economic power, lies in a key geopolitical position, and was a founding member of nato and the european community. yet of all the major european states italy is the least understood and studied. this book provides the only up-to-date survey of the italian political scene during the forty years since world war ii. it describes the inner-dynamics of the political parties, the day-to-day functioning of the governing institutions, and the interaction of the country's economic, social, and political life. it shows how a political system, riven with difficulties and seemingly in a continual crisis, survives and prospers - in some ways more successfully than its purportedly better-governed neighbours. based on the authors' first-hand observations of italian politics, the book offers a valuable insight into a subtle and complex, but fascinating political world.

Description : Read Now Crime Scenes by Anne Mullen and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. the essays in this collection are based on papers given at a conference on detective fiction in european culture, held at the university of exeter in september 1997. the range of topics covered is designed to show not only the presence and variety of narratives of detection across different european countries and their different media (although there is a predictable emphasis on the novel). it also illustrates the fertility of the genre, its openness to a spectrum of readings with different emphases, formal as well as thematic. approaches to detective fiction have often tended to confine them-selves to 'symptomatic' interpretation, where details of the fictional world represented are used to diagnose a specific set of social preoccupations and priorities operative at the time of writing. such approaches can yield valuable insights. nonetheless there is a risk of limiting the value of the genre as a whole solely to its role as a mirror held up to society. in this perspective, issues of structure and style are sidelined, or, if addressed, are praised to the extent that they approach invisibility — concision, spareness, realism are the qualities singled out for praise. the genre also gives much scope for formal innovation — and indeed has often attracted already established 'mainstream' writers and filmmakers for just this reason.the eclectic diversity of the detective narratives considered in this volume reveal the malleability of the traditional constraints of the genre. the essays bear rich testimony to the value of considering the interplay of thematic and structural issues, even in the most apparently unselfconscious and popular (or populist) forms of narrative. the patterns of reassurance, the triumph of intellect and the ordered, rational world 'of old' are now challenged by the need to foreground the problems, ambiguities and uncertainties of the self and of society. the plurality of meanings and the antithetical imperatives explored in these detective narratives confirm that the most recent forms of the genre are not mere palimpsests of their 'golden age' precursors. the subversion of traditional expectations and the implementation of diverse stylistic devices take the genre beyond mere homage and pastiche. the role of the reader/spectator and critic in conferring meaning is a crucial one.
