  1. A Gentleman in Moscow

    “Through Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov's ordinary encounters and activities within the bounds of the four walls of post-revolutionary Moscow's Metropol Hotel, where he is under house arrest, Towles deftly guides readers across a century of Russian history, from the Bolshevik uprising to the dawn of the nuclear age under Krushchev. Grandiloquent language and drama reminiscent of Tolstoy gradually give way to action and tradecraft suggestive of le Carre in this lovely and entertaining tale of one man's determination to maintain his dignity and passion for life, even after being stripped of his title, belongings, and freedom. Reading A Gentleman in Moscow is pure pleasure!”

  8. From the Corner of the Oval

    “A thoroughly enjoyable and interesting book that makes public service, working for POTUS, a job in the White House a worthy occupation. An insider's personal account, it gives details about the the president and numerous others either identified or disguised as well as the inevitable personal pot holes that make the book a sort of novelization. By the way, who knew that "stenographer" is still an active job title. Fans of "Madame Secretary," political junkies of many stripes and those longing for a return to a sense of normalcy in the White House will pick up this book with gratitude.”
