The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman

(Finished December 6, 2011)

I received this book as a gift from my aunt and uncle, and I’m so glad I did! I had been wanting to read it, but who knows when I would have gotten around to it.

I really enjoyed this book. A collection of intertwining stories, it follows the staff of an international newspaper in Rome. From the lowly, lonely copyeditor to the newspaper owner’s rich, spoiled, yet insecure son — every story was unique. Some were funny, some mundane, and others heart-wrenching. Oh journalists.
