About the Book
In his second remarkable work of fiction, A Gentleman in Moscow, New York Times bestselling author Amor Towles further establishes his reputation as one of contemporary literature’s most exciting and singular writers. A big novel that embodies the grandiloquent style and spirit of Russia’s Golden Age of Literature, A Gentleman in Moscow is a captivating story of personal and emotional discovery that spans more than three decades and takes place almost entirely within the walls of the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. 

Named as one of the best books of 2016 by the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, the San Francisco Chronicle, and NPR, A Gentleman in Moscow spent 59 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list!

“Sly and winning….Listen closely and you might hear a Wes Anderson soundtrack playing….Towles is a craftsman...he chooses themes that run deeper than mere sociopolitical commentary: parental duty, friendship, romance, the call of home.” —The New York Times Book Review
