Product description

Review

"The new novel we couldn't put down...in the crisp, noirish prose of the era, Towles portrays complex relationships in a city that is at once melting pot and elitist enclave - and a thoroughly modern heroine who fearlessly claims her place in it."
-"O, the Oprah Magazine"
"This very good first novel about striving and surviving in Depression- era Manhattan deserves attention...The great strength of "Rules of Civility" is in the sharp, sure-handed...evocation of Manhattan in the late '30s."
-"Wall Street Journal"
"Put on some Billie Holiday, pour a dry martini and immerse yourself in the eventful life of Katey Kontent...[Towles] clearly knows the privileged world he's writing about, as well as the vivid, sometimes reckless characters who inhabit it."
-"People"

-"The San Francisco --This text refers to the paperback edition.
