Book of the Month: August 2018

Though riddled with a slow start, A Gentleman in Moscow is a magical novel that sets a formerly well respected man, simply known as the Count, against the backdrop of a famous hotel in Moscow. Amidst this backdrop is the curious circumstance that has placed him in this hotel, house arrest.

As he navigates the wide corridors of his new prison, the Count finds himself at the center of the show that is everyday life in this living, breathing building. With a style of writing I’ve come to cherish, author Amor Towles, I think, has hit on a real masterpiece. You won’t regret learning about the Count, early 20th century Russia, and maybe even a little bit about yourself in this delicious read.
