Marcy McKay is the Book Leader for Amor Towles’ Gentleman in Moscow


Book Eleven takes us to Russian with Amor Towles’ Gentleman in Moscow. 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. Rostov learns what it means to be a man of purpose.
