insightful or original than Amor Towles's A Gentleman in Moscow' Sunday
Times, 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?
