A Gentleman in Moscow

Amor Towles
Gentleman in Moscow hardback

Our December 2017 recommendation for London Morgan is for a novel that is well on its way to becoming a bestseller in the UK as well as in the US: Count Rostov, spared a bullet on his surprising return to Moscow in 1922, must live out his house arrest and leaner times in the still opulent Hotel Metropol. Gently inventive, funny, ingenious and thoroughly beguiling. For those who haven’t read this yet, it is a tremendous pleasure!
