"A Gentleman in Moscow immerses us in another elegantly drawn era with the story of Count Alexander Rostov. When, in 1922, he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the count is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel's doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery..."--… (mais)

Count Alexander Rostov is sentenced to a lifetime of house arrest in Moscow's Metropole Hotel for his crime of writing controversial poetry in the time of the Russian Revolution. Transferred from his normal palatial suite of rooms in the hotel, he is forced to live in cramped accommodation on the top floor. This fascinating novel chronicles his decades of life at the hotel, which unfold with surprising richness, rewards and surprises. Always a gentleman, Count Rostov forges important friendships, deploys his charms in the role of headwaiter at the hotel's poshest restaurant, and eventually becomes an accidental parent. This is a book about the possibilities of creating a valuable and satisfying life in circumstances that appear to be cruelly restricted and unbearable. It is about the importance of good manners, courtesy, respecting others and nurturing friendships. It is about the comforts to be found in everyday routines, self-discipline, good food, drink and conversation. I was sorry to come to the end of this most unusual tale. ( )

One of the most memorable books I’ve ever read, or, in this case, listened to! ( )

Amazing lesson in Stoicism disguised as a superbly written novel. Also, Rostov is possibly the best fictional character I've ever encountered in my entire life. ( )

This is the story of a Russian noble in the Soviet Union who lives in a hotel under threat of execution if he attempts to leave. The book has the sort of polished prose that would usually describe something awful eventually. Knowing the sorts of things that happened in Soviet Russia, I was even more worried that this book was going to take a dark and horrifying turn. Thankfully while there were some dark moments, and implied many more, but it never wallowed in those moments or betrayed my trust. Instead, it was charming and thoughtful throughout. ( )

Detailed well written story of Russian on house arrest in a hotel for decades. This story tells of his life, along with the Russian history of the mid 1920s to the 1950s. A knowledge of Russian history would have helped. I understand the audio book read by Tom Hanks is excellent. In large print, this was over 700 pages. ( )

In his remarkable first novel, the best-selling Rules of Civility (2011), Towles etched 1930s New York in crystalline relief. Though set a world away in Moscow over the course of three decades, his latest polished literary foray into a bygone era is just as impressive. Sentenced as an incorrigible aristocrat in 1922 by the Bolsheviks to a life of house arrest in a grand Moscow hotel, Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov is spared the firing squad on the basis of a revolutionary poem he penned as an idealistic youth. Condemned, instead, to live his life confined to the indoor parameters of Metropol Hotel, he eschews bitterness in favor of committing himself to practicalities. As he carves out a new existence for himself in his shabby attic room and within the magnificent walls of the hotel-at-large, his conduct, his resolve, and his commitment to his home and to the hotel guests and staff together form a triumph of the human spirit. As Moscow undergoes vast political changes and countless social upheavals, Rostov remains, implacably and unceasingly, a gentleman. Towles presents an imaginative and unforgettable historical portrait.--Flanagan, Margaret Copyright 2016 Booklist

How well I remember

When it came as a visitor on foot
And dwelt a while amongst us
A melody in the semblance of a mountain cat.

Well, where is our purpose now?

Like so many questions
I answer this one
With the eye-averted peeling of a pear.

With a bow I bid goodnight
And pass through terrace doors
Into the simple splendors
Of another temperate spring;

But this much I know;

It is not lost among the autumn leaves on Peter's Square.
It is not among the ashes in the Athenaeum ash cans.
It is not inside the blue pagodas of your fine Chinoiserie.

It is not in Vronsky's saddlebags;
Not in Sonnet XXX, stanza one;
Not on twenty-seven red...

                                    Where Is It Now? (Lines 1-19)

At half past six on the twenty-first of June 1922, when Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov was escorted through the gates of the Kremlin onto Red Square, it was glorious and cool.

Mindful of their surroundings, the three damsels would initially speak in the hushed voices of gentility; but swept away by the currents of their own emotions, their voices would inevitably rise, such that by 11:15, even the most discreet enjoyer of a pastry would have no choice but to eavesdrop on the thousand-layered complications of their hearts.
The crowded confusion of furniture gave the Count's little domain the look of a consignment shop in the Arbat.
Yes, some claimed Emile Zhukovsky was a curmudgeon and others called him abrupt. Some said he was a short man with a shorter temper.
It was a place where Russians cut from every cloth could come to linger over coffee, happen upon friends, stumble into arguments, or drift into dalliances—and where the lone diner seated under the great glass ceiling could indulge himself in admiration, indignation, suspicion, and laughter without getting up from his chair.
Tall and thin, with a narrow head and superior demeanor, he looked rather like a bishop that had been plucked from a chessboard.
