The novel buzzes with the energy of numerous adventures, love affairs, [and] twists of fate.”—The Wall Street Journal
As this irresistible novel by Amor Towles opens, in 1922, a Russian Count in his early thirties is sentenced by the Bolsheviks to spend the rest of his life in a small attic room in a luxury hotel near the Kremlin. Unexpectedly, the Count’s reduced circumstances provide him entry to a much larger world of emotional discovery as he forges friendships over the following three decades with the hotel’s other denizens, including a willful actress, a shrewd Kremlinite, a gregarious American, and a temperamental chef. When fate suddenly puts the life of a young girl in his hands, he must draw on all his ingenuity to protect the future she so deserves.
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 more than twenty years, he now devotes himself full time to writing. His first novel, RULES OF CIVILITY, published in 2011, was a New York Times bestseller. Towles lives in Manhattan with his wife and two children.
