Publisher Description

From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Lincoln Highway and A Gentleman in Moscow, a “sharply stylish” (Boston Globe) book about a young woman in post-Depression era New York who suddenly finds herself thrust into high society—now with over one million readers worldwide

On the last night of 1937, twenty-five-year-old Katey Kontent is in a second-rate Greenwich Village jazz bar when Tinker Grey, a handsome banker, happens to sit down at the neighboring table. This chance encounter and its startling consequences propel Katey on a year-long journey into the upper echelons of New York society—where she will have little to rely upon other than a bracing wit and her own brand of cool nerve.

With its sparkling depiction of New York’s social strata, its intricate imagery and themes, and its immensely appealing characters, Rules of Civility won the hearts of readers and critics alike.

I love everything he writes. Looking forward to his upcoming!

Left Out (objectivity) ,

Definitely a good book but not the masterpieces that Lincoln Highway and a Gentleman in Moscow are

This book has interesting characters and a sprinkling of the author's insightful philosophical view of people and the world on each page. It is more a book about people than a book with an interesting story. I would definitely recommend reading it but, without doubt, would recommend the other books 1st. Will definitely read his next book when it becomes available.
