Rules of Civility: Amor Towles

This isn’t a plot/character line (single, young, first-generation woman on her own in Manhattan in the 1930s, making her way through the restrictions of societal conventions) I’m usually attracted to, but I picked it up because I wanted to read Towles A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW but found his debut novel first.

The book is absorbing; the style and word choice are elegant and consuming. Well worth your time.
