‘This novel is astonishing, uplifting and wise. Don’t miss it’ Chris Cleave

‘No historical novel this year was more witty, insightful or original than Amor Towles’s A Gentleman in MoscowSunday Times, Books of the Year

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

'[A] supremely uplifting novel ... It's elegant, witty and delightful - much like the Count himself.' Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year

On 21 June 1922, Count Alexander Rostov – recipient of the Order of Saint Andrew, member of the Jockey Club, Master of the Hunt – is escorted out of the Kremlin, across Red Square and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol.

Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. But instead of his usual suite, he must now live in an attic room while Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval.

Can a life without luxury be the richest of all?

This is why I pick up books again

It’s been a while since I last picked up a book and I’m incredibly grateful the first book I picked off the shelf at the book store is this one. What an incredible story of charm, humour, perseverance and wisdom’s ability of championing the human conditions, no matter how grim they may seem.

A gentleman in Moscow

Wonderful, exquisite, most pleasurable novel I have read in many years.
I hope it gets all the credit the novelist deserves.
