Amor Towle’s witty and insightful A Gentleman in Moscow immerses the reader into the story of Count Alexander Rostov.  Sentenced to house arrest inside a luxury hotel across the street from the Kremlin, Count Rostov observers changes come and go.   His reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

'Charming ... shows that not all books about Russian aristocrats have to be full of doom and nihilism' The Times, Books of the Year

‘Voici un roman étonnant qui montre que même frappés par les oukazes du régime soviétique, certains seraient quand même arrivés à profiter de la vie.’ Cultur-Tops.fr
