Greenlight Fiction Book Group
Greenlight Bookstore, Tuesday, May 20 at 7:30pm
Tuesday, May 20, 7:30 PM Greenlight Fiction Book Group discusses The Imperfectionists Led by Greenlight general manager Alexis, this book group discusses paperback fiction on the third Tuesday of each month. For May, the group discusses Tom Rachman’s acclaimed debut novel The Imperfectionists. Set against the gorgeous backdrop of Rome, the novel follows the topsy-turvy private lives of the reporters, editors, and executives of an international English language newspaper as they struggle to keep it — and themselves — afloat. As the era of print news gives way to the Internet age and this imperfect crew stumbles toward an uncertain future, the paper’s rich history is revealed, including the surprising truth about its founder’s intentions. Christopher Buckley wrote of the book in the New York Times, ““So good I had to read it twice simply to figure out how he pulled it off. I still haven’t answered that question, nor do I know how someone so young . . . could have acquired such a precocious grasp of human foibles. The novel is alternately hilarious and heart-wrenching.”
