Beside the story, Tim Parks is brilliant. The parallels he draws between a love a sport and other parts of life and entertainment.
With no agenda, Parks portrays all angles, and does so fairly. It was an intense year with Verona, and one that makes me want to travel with a Serie A club too!
Excellent book, and highly recommended. If you love Serie A, or football in general- you can do no better.
For that reason, I would also recommend this book over The Miracle of Casal di Sangro, which is written by an American whose bias is ultimately reflected in the book in a negative way.
If you're a fan of Italian soccer, or even remotely interested in Italian culture read A Season With Verona.
