Abebooks review a season with verona by tim parks


A Season With Verona is the title of a 2002 book by Verona based British author Tim Parks. It tells the story of a single season following the fortunes of Italian football club Hellas Verona, and deals especially with Parks' relationship with the infamous hard core Brigate Giallobl├╣ who make up Verona's travelling support. All the matches are detailed as well as many off-field dealings. Aside from detailing Hellas Verona's on-the-pitch exploits, Parks provides a commentary of political events in Italy at the time (namely the national election held in 2001 that brought Silvio Berlusconi into power). The author also describes the way in which the city of Verona is viewed by other parts of the country, with particular emphasis on the xenophobic reputation the football club and the city of Verona are sometimes characterized with.
