Product description

Review

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

"A comic masterpiece . . . very funny, tender and as laughably accurate an account of the dismal nature of life in Soviet Russia as one could hope for . . . Quite apart from the ingeniously ludicrous plot and the acutely drawn characters, what adds to the joy of this book is the precision of Towles’ style. Again and again he conveys exactly the right impression with a deliciously surprising choice of words . . . a sheer delight." (William Hartson Daily Express)

"A work of great charm, intelligence and insight." (Nick Rennison Sunday Times)

"No historical novel was more witty, insightful and original" (Sunday Times, Culture Magazine)

"Elegant sentences, wonderful characters and inventive storytelling . . . This is everything a novel should be: charming, witty, poetic and generous. An absolute delight." (Mail on Sunday)

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

"I think the world feels so disordered right now. The count’s refinement and genteel nature are exactly what we’re longing for. His world was also in shambles but he maintained his grace and humor." (Ann Patchett)

"There is so, so much to love in this book as we keep company with the endlessly entertaining Count . . .[This] novel is wistful, whimsical and wry and elegantly captures that most apposite of lessons: 'By the smallest of one's actions, one can restore some sense of order to the world'. Brilliant" (Eithne Farry Sunday Express)

"A Gentleman in Moscow is a tale abundant in humour, history and humanity, with a poignant message about time passing. That Towles also makes this rollicking good fun is no mean feat." (Constance Watson Sunday Telegraph)

"WINNING . . . GORGEOUS . . . SATISFYING . . . TOWLES IS A CRAFTSMAN" (New York Times Book Review)

Book Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Civility - a transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel.
