6:00 PM, Arcata Library's 'A Novel Idea' Book Group, A Gentleman in Moscow (Zoom)

Thursday, November 18, 2021

Have you read this book? Join us on Zoom for a lively discussion! The gentleman in Moscow is Count Alexander Rostov, who is sentenced in 1922 to indefinite house arrest in the attic of the Hotel Metropol as Russia convulses on every front. What could be another arduous Russian epic becomes, in the hands of Amor Towles, a rollicking read about the power of one person to restore order to chaos, humanity to insanity, and comedy to grief.

A Gentleman in Moscow

by Amor Towles

'Everything a novel should be: charming, witty, poetic and generous. An absolute delight'  -- The Mail on Sunday 

The cover of A Gentleman in Moscow features a man looking out a hotel window into the city.

Arcata Library hosts 'A Novel Idea' book group via Zoom.
