This month Read Between the Wines is reading A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor
In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat
by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced t 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 entry to a much
larger world of emotional discovery.
