The Imperfectionists

The Imperfectionists, a novel by Tom Rachman, surprised me a little.  Not that it was good, as it was consistently ranked as one of the best non-fiction books of 2010, but because I wasn't expecting such emotion in the last ditty of the book.

This novel introduces you to a few key players at an international newspaper based in Rome.  Each character has a story to tell about their life at that moment, and each character is a person with a backstory and a life they are living.  Each character will break your heart in their own way.

This book was a reminder that you never know what is happening behind the scenes in someone's life.  What you see on the outside may be very different than what is happening on the inside.  You just never know.
