Tim Parks and his wife, Rita, came to their flat on the aging, eccentric Via Colombare in Montecchio twelve years ago for a short stay. There was trouble from the moment they moved in--under cover of night--and it has gone delightfully up and down hill ever since. In this amusing and loving tribute to the glorious country he has embraced, British novelist Tim Parks shares his secrets of survival, tales of the unexpected, and treasured friendships with new-found friends and Italian neighbors.

Entertaining memories even after more than twenty years. It would be interesting to see how much change has taken place since the nineties.

I am in love with anything Italian - so it's a given that I would enjoy this book. The author moves to the Veneto with his Italian wife, and we dive into the culture along with them. Very different from the typical travel lit, didn't focus on food/wine or home renovations - just on people. Now that I'm finished, I feel like I've moved and will miss the neighbours.
