Readers talk about 'The Imperfectionists' at Bainbridge book group meeting this week
The Bainbridge Library Book Group will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28 at the library.
The group will talk about “The Imperfectionists” by Tom Rachman. An “imperfect” crew of reporters and editors working for an international English language newspaper stumble toward an uncertain future as the era of print news gives way to the Internet age. The story is set against the gorgeous backdrop of Rome.
The novel, Rachman's first, was picked as an Editor's Choice by the Chicago Tribune.
Said the Tribune: "Tom Rachman has somehow channeled Calvin Trillin's Floater and Evelyn Waugh's Scoop so brilliantly that even a hard-boiled veteran of newspapers couldn't help falling for this tale."
