A Gentleman in Moscow immerses us in the story of Count Alexander Rostov, who, in 1922 is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition & wit, has never worked a day in his life, & must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, & one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose. 
"Amor Towles writes with grace and verve about the mores & manners of a society on the cusp of radical change.” (NPR)
