A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel by Amor Towles

A transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel. In 1922, Count Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, never having 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 door. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. Full of humor, the novel relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose.
