Message from Delight:
“During this uncertain time I’ve chosen a fictional book that is one of my all-time favorite reads, “A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles. I was sorry when it ended because I so enjoyed the company of the Count and am looking forward to rejoining his world–especially in this moment. It’s available in paperback and if you can, please consider supporting your local bookstore as most are now mailing books! (although I did shamelessly cut and paste the content below from Amazon).
Happy reading and I hope you love this book as much as I did!”
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.
The mega-bestseller with more than 2 million readers, soon to be a major television series
“The novel buzzes with the energy of numerous adventures, love affairs, [and] twists of fate.” —The Wall Street Journal
In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery.
Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose.
