Originally published: London: Harvill Secker, 2021
In the summer of 1849, Giuseppe Garibaldi was finally forced to abandon his defence of Rome. He and his men had held the besieged city for three long months, but now it was clear that only surrender would prevent slaughter and destruction at the hands of a much superior French army. Against all odds, Garibaldi was determined to turn defeat into moral victory. In 'The Hero's Way', Tim Parks follows the hair-raising journey of Italian revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi, 250-miles on foot from Rome to Ravenna, to explore Italy's past and present.

Type: Book

Note: Originally published: London: Harvill Secker, 2014 Morris Duckworth has a dark past. Having married and murdered his way into a wealthy Italian family he has long left aside the paperweight and the pillow to become a respected member of Veronese business life. But it's not enough. Never satisfied with being anything short of the best, he comes up with a plan to put on the most exciting art exhibition of the decade, based on a subject close to his heart: killing. All the great slaughters of scripture and classical times will be on show, from Cain and Abel, to Brutus and Caesar. But as Morris meet stiff resistance from the Neapolitan director of Verona's Castelvecchio museum, everything starts to unravel around him.

Book:Out of my head, on the trail of consciousness:2020 Book
Author: Parks, Tim
Year: 2020
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Vintage
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: London: Harvill Secker, 2018 Hardly a day goes by without some discussion about whether computers can be conscious, whether our universe is some kind of simulation, whether mind is a unique quality of human beings or spread out across the universe like butter on bread. Most philosophers believe that our experience is locked inside our skulls, an unreliable representation of a quite different reality outside. Colour, smell and sound, they tell us, occur only in our heads. Yet when neuroscientists look inside our brains to see what's going on, they find only billions of neurons exchanging electrical impulses and releasing chemical substances. 'Out of My Head' tells the gripping story of Tim Parks' quest to discover more about this fascinating topic.
