The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman

04 Aug

Through a series of vignettes, the book explores the lives of the staff at a small international paper located in Rome.

I enjoyed it, especially the chapters featuring the descendants of the paper’s wealthy founder. They sure seemed a lot like the Bluths. Also interesting was each character’s involvement in their particular job even as the paper, and the industry itself, was dying around them.

My only quibble: To many foreign phrases and names. Yes, Mr. Rachman, I am impressed by your knowledge of local Roman cuisine. Now please remember your job is to communicate.
