    Review quote
    "Spectacular."--"The New York Times" "Magnificent."--"Seattle Post Intelligencer" "Beguiling."--"The Washington Post" "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."--Christopher Buckley, "The New York Times Book Review" "Marvelous . . . a rich, thrilling book . . . a splendid original, filled with wit and structured so ingeniously that figuring out where the author is headed is half the reader's fun."--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times" "Each chapter is so finely wrought that it could stand alone as a memorable short story. Slowly, the separate strands become entwined and the line characters have drawn between their work and home lives is erased. . . . Funny, poignant, occasionally breathtaking." --"Financial Times" "Superb . . . Rachman delivers word portraits with all the verisimilitude of some of those masters hanging in the museums of Rome. He's that good."--"The Plain Dealer " "Deftly written and sharply observed . . . Even if you've never set foot in a newsroom, "The Imperfectionists "proves a delight . . . It's impossible not to like--this is masterful stuff."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
