«Addictive reading...each chapter is a short story, the whole book an epic»

Observer

«An enthralling, insightful account of the real Italy»

Independent

«A fascinating emotional journey... His descriptions of Italian football are descriptions of Italy itself, its regional differences, its squabbles, its distinctive temper»

Daily Telegraph

«Parks knows his football, and he knows Italy still better. His adopted country, in all its enduring and exasperating strengths and weaknesses, comes vividly to life»

Sunday Times
