Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Imperfectionists is an absolutely winning novel funny, sad, affecting and sharply observational. Its set in the office of an English-language international paper, based in Rome, each chapter telling the story of a different employee on the paper, from ambitious workaholic editor-in-chief Kathleen Solson to obituary writer Arthur Gopal, the son of a world-famous journalist whose overriding ambition is to do as little work as possible and rush home to his beloved daughter, Peanut.

Timothy Lane, January 6, 2011 (view all comments by Timothy Lane)
This book edged out SKIPPY DIES by Paul Murray as the best book I read this year. This is an amazing, schizophrenic piece of literature that somehow manages the impressive feat of hopping from character to character and back and forth through time—sometimes in the same page—without ever becoming confusing. In fact, it is a strong point of the book to see the same world through such a fractured lens. It is a character study on people we all know, facing a dramatic shift in the world they know. I started the book on Monday. Finished on a Wednesday. Made me laugh, gag, and well up. Strongly recommended.
