Details

A recent best seller, A Gentleman in Moscow brings us to The Metropol, the famed Moscow hotel where movie stars and Russian royalty hobnob, where spies spy, thieves thieve and danger lurks.
The year is 1922, and wealthy Count Alexander Rostov lives under house arrest for a poem deemed incendiary, and meets a precocious and wide-eyed young girl who will irrevocably change his life. Towles magnificently conjures the grandeur of the Russian hotel and the vibrancy of the characters that call it home.
