Again and again he conveys exactly the right impression with a deliciously surprising choice of words . . . a sheer delight. — William Hartson ―

There is so, so much to love in this book as we keep company with the endlessly entertaining Count . . .[This] novel is wistful, whimsical and wry and elegantly captures that most apposite of lessons: ‘By the smallest of one’s actions, one can restore some sense of order to the world’. Brilliant ―

A Gentleman in Moscow
is a tale abundant in humour, history and humanity, with a poignant message about time passing. That Towles also makes this rollicking good fun is no mean feat. ―
