Summary: The New York Times bestselling novel that "enchants on first reading and only improves on the second" (The Philadelphia Inquirer) Coming this fall, A Gentleman in Moscow - the highly anticipated new novel from Amor TowlesThis sophisticated and entertaining first novel presents the story of a young woman whose life is on the brink of transformation. On the last night of 1937, twenty-five-year-old Katey Kontent is in a second-rate Greenwich Village jazz bar when Tinker Grey, a handsome banker, happens to sit down at the neighboring table. This chance encounter and its startling consequences propel Katey on a year-long journey into the upper echelons of New York society -- where she will have little to rely upon other than a bracing wit and her own brand of cool nerve. With its sparkling depiction of New York's social strata, its intricate imagery and themes, and its immensely appealing characters, Rules of Civility won the hearts of readers and critics alike. From the Trade Paperback edition.
