A Season with Verona
EPUB EBook by Tim Parks
EBook DescriptionOne of the best books about football's deeper appeal; download; Verona,a city often forgotten about in the classical litany of great Italian cities,has some of the most intense footballing rivalries — with minnows like Chievo Verona, the 'Flying Donkeys',but also with the near neighbours,Brescia,Padova & my Italian team,Vicenza. A Season with Verona EPUB EBook(I followed the 'biancorossi' for the 1985- EPUB86 season which ended in the 'calcionero' fall-out & a punishment for corruption;Vicenza's promotion from 'B' to 'A' was overturned). Tim Parks really gets under the radar,& analyses & enthuses over the commitment & devotion of Hellas Verona's combative fans.As an 'Englishman italianised',he is a very devil (in literary terms!)not holding back in his judgements on Italy's troubled post-war political history,& the often unpleasant aspects of Italian football alleigances.There is something here for all italianophiles,as Parks understands the dynamics of modern Italy as no foreigner has a right to.I found myself nodding at his observations & assertions; but this saga reads well too,& will have you wondering why no-one has ever tried it before.It has more reality than Nick Hornby's Arsenal panegyric,& is a welcome addition to the genre of football non-fiction (most footballers employ ghost-writers,whose deathless prose condemns many of our sportingheroes to open ridicule in countless 'autobiographies').I like Tim Parks's novels but his non-fiction work stands tall too.
