Summer Novel

My summer novel: The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman. Described as a witty look into the offices of a failing English language newspaper in Rome. Glorious reviews. But very imperfect. It's a quick read, but almost instantly forgettable too. I'm just not sure I'm up for Peggy Steinfels's selection.....
