A Gentleman in Moscow [9780099558781]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

More than half a million readers have fallen in love with the New York Times bestseller A Gentleman in Moscow

On 21 June 1922 Count Alexander Rostov - recipient of the Order of Saint Andrew, member of the Jockey Club, Master of the Hunt - is escorted out of the Kremlin, across Red Square and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol. But instead of being taken to his usual suite, he is led to an attic room with a window the size of a chessboard.

Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. While Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval, the Count, stripped of the trappings that defined his life, is forced to question what makes us who we are. And with the assistance of a glamorous actress, a cantankerous chef and a very serious child, Rostov unexpectedly discovers a new understanding of both pleasure and purpose.

'Everything a novel should be: charming, witty, poetic and generous. An absolute delight' Mail on Sunday. 'A work of great charm, intelligence and insight' Sunday Times. 'Winning . . . gorgeous . . . satisfying . . . Towles is a craftsman' New York Times Book Review. 'A comic masterpiece' Daily Express. 'If we do a better book than this one on the book club this year we will be very very lucky' Matt Williams, Radio 2 Book Club. 'Abundant in humour, history and humanity' Sunday Telegraph. 'Wistful, whimsical and wry' Sunday Express.

AUTHOR: Amor Towles was born and raised in the Boston area. He graduated from Yale University and received an MA in English from Stanford University. An investment professional for over twenty years, he now devotes himself full time to writing. Towles lives in Manhattan with his wife and two children.
