The Imperfectionists

Assembly. If you’re willing to give a debut novel a chance, consider Tom Rachman’s fine offering, The Imperfectionists. With great skill, Rachman presents portraits of characters, each with his or her own chapter, like individual sections of the failing newspaper that draws them together. Rachman paints these portraits with a consistent level of depth across ages and gender so that by the end of the book, I came away with great satisfaction in having spent time getting to know authentic characters displaying a full range of human behavior. Any reader who prefers taking a book in small doses can enjoy these chapters in a leisurely way.

Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
