Thursday Book Group discusses A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
When, in 1922, he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count Rostov 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 a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery. New members always welcome. Copies of the current book are available at the Ask Here Desk while supplies last.
