“In all ways a great novel, a nonstop pleasure brimming with charm, personal wisdom, and philosophic insight . . . this book more than fulfils the promise of Towles’ stylish debut, Rules of Civility.”

KIRKUS REVIEWS

Winning the hearts of critics and readers alike, Amor Towles’ “brilliantly realized… [and] sharply stylish” (The Boston Globe) debut novel, Rules of Civility, was one of 2011’s biggest breakout literary bestsellers. In Rules, Towles marvellously evoked touchstones like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Edith Wharton, bringing late 1930s Manhattan to life with splendid atmosphere and a flawless command of style.

In A Gentleman in Moscow, his highly anticipated second novel about a thirty-year-old Russian aristocrat who is sentenced to house arrest inside the luxurious Hotel Metropol, Towles further establishes his reputation as one of contemporary literature’s most exciting and singular writers.
