Imagine being under house arrest for the rest of your life...

And now imagine that "house" is an attic room of a five star hotel in Moscow, Russia. The crime of which you are guilty not thievery or brutality; nay, you are convicted of being an aristocrat in Bolshevik Russia. What follows is the story of Count Alexander Rostov, a highly refined, highly educated man; now reduced to a life among the employees and guests of the Metropol hotel in Soviet Russia. Throughout the years there is tragedy, love, loss, fine foods and wines, and intriguing characters--as befits a sweeping tale of Russia. Get lost in a different time and place with the fine writing of Amor Towles.
